Eoghan and Cherish Sharemilkers
Eoghan & Cherish originally hail from Tipperary but moved to Wicklow with their 2 young boys to take on this opportunity. Eoghan has a BSc in Agriculture from WIT; is with Saturn Farms since 2013 & leads a team of 4. They have plentiful experience on the farm gained from Ireland, Denmark & New Zealand. This diverse knowledge coming together on one team is proving beneficial!
