I’m a Social Farmer designate and joint owner of Blissberry Organic Farm in Doorin Mountcharles with my wife Winifred Mc Nulty (Writer and Life Coach) and our son Patrick (enthusiastic young farmer). Worked 35 + years in health, community & social services settings. Left work with the Health Service Executive two years ago, took early retirement to follow the dream and spent the last few years developing the organic small holding, we grow a wide range of vegetables and produce some amazing organic blueberries that are regular favourites at our local Country Market and with our local restaurant in Mountcharles Village. We have a mixed – both with horticultural and arable crops and we keep livestock as well. Like many organic farmers, we are all particularly proud of the population of our wildlife that inhabit our farm and our hazel woodland and waterfall.
