History of Irish Farms:

In the 1840's two thirds of the Irish population depended on farming for their livelihood. There were 685,309 farms, well over three times the number of holdings today. 45% of farms were between one and five acres, and only 7% over 50 acres. Since the mid-nineteenth century, the average size of Irish farms has increased. In part this was due to emigration from the countryside. The implementation of the Land Acts of the late 19th & 20th centuries produced owner-occupied farms. By the end of the 20th century the average size of a farm in Ireland was 70 acres.

Ireland today:

  • Huge growth in agriculture
  • Success of Food Harvest 2020
  • Ireland produces sufficient food for 36 million people
  • 25% of infant baby formula in China is sourced from Ireland
  • Largest exporter of beef in the northern hemisphere
  • Anticipated strong growth in the dairy sector with the abolition of Milk Quotas
  • Growing  number of young well trained farmers.

There has also been significant investment in downstream industry:

The Glambia project in Belview, Co. Kilkenny, involving an investment of €235m, is the largest indigenous infrastructure investment by an Irish company in 80 years. Danone announced a €50m doubling of capacity in its infant-formula manufacturing plant in Macroon in Co. Cork in 2010. Kerry Foods has built a global innovation centre - involving the creation of 900 jobs - in Naas, Co. Kildare. Dairygold is investing €120m in a phased project to incrementally expand its production capacity. Lakeland Dairies has began a €36m investment in an expansion of its milk-powder processing operations in Bailieborough, Co. Cavan.
