Seamus Howard - Organic Dairy Farming

Seamus Howard Organic dairy

Seamus farms 55.4Ha (137acres) of utilisable land on the edge of the Burren in Kilnaboy, Co. Clare. Seamus’ late father, James, was one of the first organic farmers in the country having commenced organic farming in 1985. He supplied milk and cheese from his 16 cows to the shops and restaurants of the Aillwee caves. When Glenisk started processing organic milk in the mid-nineties, James Howard became one of their first suppliers and Seamus continues to supply milk to them to this day. Read more about Seamus Howard's organic dairy farm
