An award-winning Irish butcher presents a modern and novel way to invest in a food-filled future – Pat Whelan, the renowned fifth generation Tipperary-based butcher, offers customers to take shares in his livestock for a deliciously rewarding dividend. You’ve heard of Kickstarter and Fund-it, this is more like food-funding.
Whether for you, a friend or even a colleague, invest in ‘beef bonds’, a slowly-maturing investment in either Angus, Hereford or Irish Wagyu beef. For each bond held, the investor will eventually be delivered a box of various cuts of prime Tipperary beef as exclusively-cut tender steaks, moist roasting joints and several succulent braising cuts. Maturing, on average, about ten to 12 weeks after purchase, the intial bond comes posted in a beautiful box with all the information the bond holder needs – cattle details, unique ID number and expected maturity date. Bonds for Angus/Hereford begin at €100 whilst Wagyu begin at €150, available for purchase online at jameswhelanbutchers.com/info/beef-bonds.
