Marguerite and Michael Crowley in Rome.

Michael and Marguerite Crowley, winners of the 2016 Carbery Quality Milk award were invited to speak at a recent UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) conference. The Crowley’s presented at the LEAP (Livestock Environmental Assessment and Performance Partnership) seminar in Rome. Michael used a ‘Digital Story’ of his farm to demonstrate the sustainable farming practices that are now part of his farm life, and how they have embraced the positive changes that have come with it.

Michael produced his digital story on the family farm in Bauravilla, Skibbereen, using an iPad to showcase great footage of the farm in its past and present state, and the work it took to get the Crowley’s farm to the success it is today. This Digital Story project was carried out as part of a Macroom-E project, funded by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and facilitated by Carbery Group and the Carbery Greener Dairy Farms participants. These digital stories document the multifaceted sustainability credentials of farmers in West Cork.

All 10 of the Carbery Greener Dairy Farm digital stories will be available for viewing on Co-op websites in December.
