Want to learn more about holistic farming and food production systems that prioritize health?
In today's episode with Pat, we will discuss how to support farmers who are looking for alternatives to synthetic chemicals, antibiotics, and artificial intervention, as well as how homeopathy can help farmers practice whole-health farming.
Pat Aherne is a conventional farmer with an unconventional outlook. Pat is located on what is properly the last piece of farmland between Cork Airport and Cork City. He holds the title of being the last farmer in his parish of Ballyphehane, a once thriving farming community and home to the famous CMP Dairies. He owns a herd of 90 cows under the prefix AnnaMaria (named after his two daughters). Pat is the third generation on the farm. His grandmother bought the farm in 1958, Pat’s father Patrick took over in 1970 and Pat took over in 2014. Pat started to explore a more unconventional approach to farming when he had a major outbreak of mastitis 13 years ago, with sixteen cases being treated at one time. Amazingly, he did get on top of the problem but swore that he would never subject his cows to the same level of antibiotic treatment again. Pat has transformed his herd's health and fertility while reducing antibiotic use through a homeopathic approach learned over the last 10 years. He is passionate about a naturopathic approach to his herd of 90 dairy cows and now leads the way in Ireland and the UK as a homeopath farmer.
