The Tykillen Farm Sustainability series are short videos showing some of the measures we have taken to improve sustainability and increase biodiversity on our farm.

During the course of our participation in the Irish Farmers Journal Footprint Farmers initiative we hope to build on these measures to reduce the carbon footprint of our farm, while increasing profitability.

To see similar stories follow the AgCredible hashtag – another fantastic initiative being promoted by Agri Aware and Alltech to try to help those in agriculture tell their positive stories about sustainability and the science behind the practice.
