This week, at the National Ploughing Championships we had the opportunity to meet up with a number of really interesting people, we have been following on Twitter. Here’s a few people we met that you should follow if you haven’t already!
- Lorna Sixsmith
Dairy Farmer and Author, Lorna has written three humourous farm themed books – ‘Would You Marry A Farmer?‘, How To Be A Perfect Farm Wife and An Ideal Farm Husband. Lorna is a powerful advocate for women in farming and co-founded the South East Women in Farming group. She is also co-organiser of @IrelandsFarmers twitter account which sees a different Irish farmer curating each week.

- Leonie Vella
Sheep Farmer, wife and mum-of-one based in Co. Wicklow, Leonie stopped by our stand on Wednesday and was one of the first to purchase our new polka dot wellies! Another great role model for women in ag. Leonie is proof that you don’t need to come from a farming background to excel in a farming career. Read this interview that Lorna conducted with Leonie to learn more about Leonie.

- Paula and Peter Hynes
We were deligthed to meet 2017 Farmer of the Year , Peter, his wife Paula and three girls Chloe, Becky and Georgie this week. I’ve been following this farming duo for awhile. Their three young girls are very much immersed in farm life and are three farmers in the making no doubt.

Those of you who know me well know I’m a huge fan of Facebook and very much a newbie to Instagram and Twitter. When it comes to Twitter, the more I use is the more convinced I am that it is the best “social networking” tools of all.
