Meet Our Farmers

To guarantee the quality of our milk, we are really selective about the farmers we partner with, and more importantly, how they farm.

The farmers who supply us are all genuinely passionate about the quality of the milk that leaves their farm, the welfare of their herd and the land they make their living off.

Only when a farm satisfies our Quality Assurance Programme can it begin to supply milk for Avonmore.

Shane O’ Loughlin, Monasterevin, Co Kildare

Shane is the third generation of his family to farm in Monasterevin. His father Dermot started dairy farming in 1943 and started supplying the local creamery in Monasterevin in 1960.  Back then it took six men to milk their 24 cows by hand but Shane now employs modern technology to milk his 200 cows to the highest standards of quality and efficiency.

Trevor & David Bennett, Abbelyleix, Co. Laois

David has been farming with his father Trevor since 2004 but Trevor has farmed beside the heritage town of Abbeyleix in County Laois since the early 70’s. Trevor witnessed the transition from bringing milk to the local creamery in Raheen in churns to the modern system employed by Avonmore which ensures maximum traceability and quality.
