In 2018 Emyvale Dairy Farmer, Darran McKenna, was awarded the Kerrygold Quality Milk Award beating a potential 16,000 other Dairy Farmers. The farm is home to approx. 100 cattle, and is where Darran grew up and now lives and runs with his Wife and 4 children.
When chosen as a finalist he never expected to be the overall winner, saying that he simply seeks to provide the best quality product he can. Since the award Darran and his family have gone on to be one of the families featured in Kerrygold’s International Ad Campaign which has been broadcast across the world including; America, and Germany.
Our reporter Sheila Naughton visited the McKenna Farm last week and spoke to Darran about the his work, the award, and how his family feel about being broadcast on TV Internationally.
