Go to: Current Farm Update

  • Tom is farming in partnership with his father and mother, James and Chrisse in Fiddawn, Inistioge.
  • They farm 118 Ha, 107 Ha of which is now in free-draining grassland. Tom became a new entrant to milk in 2018.
  • They started out with 98 cows in 2018, progressively building the herd size to 202 cows in 2024. All the heifers are contract reared.
  • The soil fertility of the farm is very good and Tom soil samples at least every 2 years. He has incorporated a lot of clover into the milking platform over the last few years and this has mainly been through his reseeding policy for the farm. He also has some multi species swards.
