Project Description

Farm Team

Padraic who joined us in 2015 is originally from a Dairy farm in Wexford. Padraic spent 2 years farming in New Zealand and has brought great knowledge from his experience there. Both Padraic & his partner Sarah have integrated really well into managing our home farm. Padraic is leading a team of 3, with Theo & Eric being the other team members. Eric is our young Dutch Farmer featuring in one of our videos. Both Padraic and Eric became Lean Green Belt certified in 2018 whilst Theo held the fort so all training could occur; a great display of team support.
