Welcome to Talamh Beo

Welcome to Ger Buckley’s Farm

Ger runs Laharn Dairy Farm, located in Coachford, County Cork. Laharn Dairy has been in the family for 100 years. Ger is the third generation of his family to work the land here between Coachford and Macroom. With the help of their herd manager, Vicky Kelleher, they currently milk 180 cows in a spring calving, grass-based system. They also rear approximately 80 replacement heifer calves and 80 in calf heifers. Some are brought into the dairy herd, and more are sold as breeding stock for other herds. 

Take a look around Ger’s farm in the gallery below.
