FARMING INDEPENDENT

Meet the Mayo man who swapped pro surfing for organic farming

 

"We are losing our sense of community in rural Ireland, which is causing huge isolation. Everyone has their own car and goes to the shop on their own, so we don't have the co-existence we had 30 years ago. We all grew up with our neighbours calling in for a chat or a song or a dinner. All of that was such a part of Ireland, that it shouldn't be hard to go back to."

From surf to turf, and from your farm to your fork...

“At the moment in Ireland 70% of our food is imported — this was not the case 50 years ago. The industrial model of food production is eroding our soil and this cannot continue. We cannot go on like this forever. It is not sustainable, but there are solutions."
