About Dunfin Farm

Our family has been living in Glenshesk and farming sheep and cattle here for over 70 years. We are deeply rooted in this special place and feel privileged to live and work in such a beautiful and diverse landscape. The Glens of Antrim are without doubt beautiful but are also challenging to farm and as such little has changed over the years in the area with old traditional practices like hill farming and peat cutting still common place. We welcome visitors to our farm to sample authentic and traditional experiences in stunning locations.
