The Irish farmers producing ‘omega beef’ in the mountains

On a cold but sunny day in early March I took a trip into the Knockmealdown Mountains on the Tipperary-Waterford border to meet the Condon family in the rugged landscape of their farm.

Farming a mixture of commonage and owned land, the family run a successful business marketing their organic pasture-fed Galloway Beef direct to the consumer. It is a beautiful part of the world and it was a privilege to get a glimpse into their enterprise and life in this unique landscape.

About Out The Gap

My name is Noel Clancy. I’m a sheep and beef farmer based in South County Tipperary in Ireland. I recently started a podcast called, ‘Out the Gap’. The content is rural issues and agricultural stories recorded live on site and in person with people in their own environment rather than over an internet call or video link.

Noel also runs and organises the @IrelandsFarmers Twitter account which has more than 30,000 followers.
