Kieran loves working outdoors and enjoys the variety of work on the farm, he is a second generation farmer and has been farming since 1990. Both he and Ann come from generations of farmers so it’s really in the blood and they love a job that keeps all the family together. They have expanded the farm to make it more profitable and sustainable and to produce top quality milk. In their spare time, Kieran and Ann enjoy reading, walking and enjoying activities with their children.
