Tommy Moloney farms with the wellbeing of his livestock, wild plants and animals foremost in his mind. He has retained native hedgerows, ancient forest, planted more native trees & protected wildflower meadows in spite of the financial cost to himself. He accepts no subsidies as he feels regulation may affect his ability to protect nature. He has started an organic vegetable business with his nephew to supply local restaurants.
