17:00 We will meet at the milking parlour and have a quick tour of the sheds 17:15 Go feed the sheep and lambs. This will also involve checking to see if any are feeling unwell 17:30 Collect the cows and bring them to the parlour for milking 18:00-19:00 Milk the cows - drink the freshest milk you're ever going to get 19:00-19:15 Return the cows to the field - get a litre of fresh milk to take home with you NOTE: As setting Guinness World Records is a bit part of our farming lives, we'll give you a chance to see how and where we trained for the records. For example, the weights that Jason carried for over 50km are stationed in the milking parlour.
Fresh, full-fat, non-homogenized milk
Our family has been farming this land for generations. Jason (my brother), Paddy (our father) and I (Eamonn) milk a herd of over 50 friesian dairy cows and keep a herd of sheep and lambs. Additionally, we're multiple Guinness World Record title holders, all of which we trained for on the farm. We've set the following records over the past number of years: Farthest Distance Farmer’s Carry in 24 Hours Carrying 100lb - Longest Journey Reversing a Tractor and Trailer - Most Squats in One Minute Carrying a 40lb Pack - Most Chest-to-Ground Burpees in One Minute - Most Rugby Conversions Scored in Three Minutes - Most Rugby Drop Goals Scored in Three Minutes - Most Rugby Conversions Scored in One Minute - Fastest Mile Wearing Handcuffs - Most Rugby Conversions Scored in One Minute (Team) and have more pending.
Guests will travel to areas within 1km of the farm yard, including the milking parlour and farm fields.
This experience will take place mostly indoors, however, certain parts are outdoors. Light rain gear will help, however, if it's bad, guests can stay in our jeep/transport and avoid the rain.
