Growing a farm asset - Grants help make forestry operation a feasible option for dairy farmers

Close

Running a dairy enterprise alongside developing a forestry asset has been “a great experience”, says north Cork farmer Stephen Jones.

Together with his father Colman, Stephen farms more than 100 hectares, milking 90 dairy cows on a platform of over 40 hectares on the main farm holding in Kanturk. The farm also carries 30 weanlings on out-farms as well as a thriving forestry enterprise on 34 hectares considered marginal for other agricultural enterprises.
