About Us

Five generations of McKee’s Farm

Our Family Today

Five generations on the same Farm with an addition of a Country Store & Restaurant is managed by Colin & Linda McKee including their four Children (the fifth generation!) Isaac, Caleb, Faye & Solomon. 

Our Farm Today

We farm 400 acres of land here in the Craigantlet Hills,  and we finish 700 cattle every year. We grow our own wheat, barley and grass. The Farm is  managed by our eldest son Isaac who was taken by the hand and taught many skills from his grandfather David Mckee. We’ve recently invested in renewable energy to help the environment – we care about the countryside which previous generations of McKees farmed before us.

Free Range Eggs

We have a flock of 1,000 Free Range Hens, from which the ‘McKees’ gather around 900  fresh eggs every day. You can see some of our hens near the car park entrance as you arrive. We also Bake, Cook and Sell Our Free Range Eggs  in the Country Store and if you come early you can feel them still warm – you cant get fresher than that! us.

Home Reared Beef

Our herds are mostly Charolais and Limousine with a few Aberdeen Angus. The Cattle are fed on high quality Grass, Wheat and Barley. Colin keeps a close eye on the herds  and Isaac and Faye  can often be seen out on the quads or the tractors taking care of the cattle. We believe the flavour of Our Beef speaks for itself – you just can’t get this quality from a supermarket-bought, pre-packed, polystyrene trays.

Our Texel Sheep

A gift of a pet Lamb surprisingly developed into a passion for farming. Faye a first year student at Greenmount Agricultural College Antrim, breeds a flock of 90 Texel Ewes. In 2020 Faye lambed and continues to rear over 180 spring Lambs. Faye is dedicated to producing top quality produce. Our Lamb receives excellent reviews!

Our Country Store

An exciting outlet for our Farm Produce. The Country Store and Restaurant continues to grow year on year.Our son Caleb manages the day to day organising of the store working tirelessly to provide  excellent  produce and service to Our local Community and beyond. We are truly humbled by the support. Solomon our youngest son has a few more years to do at school, he has been a great support and appears to be a ‘Jack of all Trades!’
