Hillstown Farm - Brewery
Located in Ahoghill, the Hillstown story began four generations ago. This 150-acre farmland is on a small settlement called Hillstown, where the Logan family have lived and worked for generations.
The family set up the shop here in 2006, stocking it with as much produce as possible from the farm itself. Meat in the shop travels the bare minimum of food miles, as the butchery counter is stocked entirely from the farm.
The onsite café also uses farm produce in many dishes. The Logans are keen to keep the business local, and source other retail products in this area. Hillstown also sells its own meat online.
By supporting other local producers, and creating employment in the area, Hillstown aims to bring their community along on the journey. Hillstown’s craft beer business began with Japanese cattle. A tour of the onsite brewery will explain how beef led naturally to beer.
As well as beef cattle, Hillstown farms rare-breed pigs (Saddlebacks, Gloucester Old Spot and Middle White), sheep and free-range chickens. The farm shop also stocks seasonal turkey and duck.
Visitors might also spot the resident llamas. They help to keep foxes away from the free-range chickens’ field.
