One of Martin Heydon’s childhood farming memories involves being with his father at Kilcullen Mart, Co Kildare, and being told by an elderly neighbour that there was no future in farming.

It was around the time of the 1992 MacSharry EU farm reforms, which began a series of big changes in Irish farming.
