Leahy’s Open Farm Reaps Benefits of LEADER Food Initiative

May 10, 2022 | LEADER News

LEADER Food Initiative

The National Rural Network (NRN) recently published a case study on Leahy’s Open Farm in East Cork.

Over the years, the family run business has benefitted greatly from the LEADER programme. Most recently, the open farm secured funding under the LEADER Food Initiative to support the purchase of production equipment for their on-site ice cream and chocolate factory. This equipment has enhanced the farm’s capacity to produce ice cream, has increased the availability and visibility of their ice cream and chocolate products, and has facilitated the development of new events and workshops for all the family in the ice cream and chocolate factory.

This fantastic LEADER project featured on page 21 of a recent issue of the Irish Farmers Journal, published on the 31st of March.

The full length version of the case study is available to view on the NRN website here.
