11 Pictures To Fall In Love With Irish Grassland

11 Pictures That Will Make You Fall In Love With Irish Grassland

We’ll be honest, The Complete Natural Team has some pretty cool days, from launching a Pop-Up Milk Bar with Made In Chelsea Stars, taking on Tour de Picnic with our ambassadors to enjoying Afternoon Tea with the Queen of cakes Mary Berry… we have had a blast!

That said, some of our best days are when we find ourselves walking through lush green fields with a local dairy farmer, talking about the history of the farm, their love of the land and caring for the cows that are grazing freely in front of us.

Yes, Ireland is admired all over the world for producing U2 and Michael Fassbender but our small nation is also hailed for our high-quality dairy produce with the unique taste, which comes from our grass-based dairy farming model. The truth is, we can’t talk about dairy farming in Ireland without talking about grass.

Our green fields and countryside often make the most beautiful photos (this roundup is merely scratching the surface), but more importantly, this feed will get you thinking about when it comes to dairy farming in Ireland it really does all come back to grass.

Irish Dairy is much-loved around the world, a success which is made possible by Irish dairy farmers and their relentless commitment 365 days a year. Without these crusaders, we could kiss those creamy flat white’s and mature cheddar cheese goodbye!

Hungry for more? We recommend checking out these 9 dairy farmers. Boasting stunning imagery and real farmer profiles, it’s always a treat when the finalists of the NDC & Kerrygold Quality Milk Awards are announced. The NDC & Kerrygold Quality Milk Awards is an annual national award programme which recognises standards of excellence in dairy farming.
