Kevin Carey farms 180 ewes on the Mullet Peninsula and Iniskea islands in Co Mayo. Unhappy with the price he was receiving for lamb in the factory earlier this year, he set up Atlantic Erris Lamb – his own brand of lamb which he sells direct to restaurants and customers.

He farms with his wife, Paula, and two children, Caoimhe and Bobby, and started farming in 2012 after his father passed away.
