Miriam Gunn

Miriam farms with her husband and their four children in Strokestown, Co. Roscommon. They have 180 Holstein cows and were NDC and Kerrygold Quality Milk Awards finalists in 2019.
Miriam is passionate about the role of women in farming, saying “Women have always been in the background, keeping the show on the road, but they haven’t necessarily had a voice.” Miriam is a founder member of the new women’s farming discussion group, set up by Aurivo Co-op.

Miriam, farmer and mum of four, believes that Women in Dairy is about recognition – her grandmother worked on the farm but would never have considered herself a farmer. “It’s about women standing up and saying, hold on, we’re doing this too, and being acknowledged for it.” She’s also keen to see country kids being encouraged to participate in dairying and to be proud to be part of it.
