FARMER AMBASSADOR

Caroline Hanrahan

Caroline Hanrahan and her husband Ger own and operate one of the 17,500 family-run farms in Ireland, producing milk and other milk products with their 350 strong dairy cows. Caroline is well-used to farming, having grown up on her own family farm, before getting a science degree in University College Dublin. A few years later, she married Ger, and the pair have been working together, along with their five children, in the dairy business ever since.
The Hanrahan farm located near Ballyhooly in north Cork has been in their family’s hands for six generations and across that time they’ve seen a lot of changes throughout the dairy industry in Ireland. The family currently supplies to Dairygold.

“We look after the cows better than we look after ourselves” – Tom tells us about the care that Irish farmers take with their cows, he talks about Irish dairy being the best in the world and he says that culling the national herd would be a disaster. He also lets us know that, rather than being a farmer, his daughter would like to be a unicorn or a fairy.
