About Darragh McCullough
Darragh McCullogh has spent over 20 years farming, as well as reporting on and writing about all aspects of agriculture for national radio, TV and print outlets. As he readily admits, he’s far better talking about farming than doing it!
You may be familiar with RTE’s longest running independently produced programme, Ear to the Ground, which Darragh has presented for over 20 years.
In addition to regular screen and radio slots, Darragh writes a weekly column in the IRISH INDEPENDENT’S FARMING SUPPLEMENT.
Darragh credits the privilege of meeting inspiring farmers from every county and indeed all over the world with many of the ideas that have evolved during his time in charge of Elmgrove Farm.
But he also acknowledges the long line of farming innovators that led the way before him, with both his father and grandfather pioneering cutting edge agriculture through their use of milking robots, new breeds of livestock, and high-value crops throughout their careers.
Darragh McCullough is the third generation of his family to farm at Elmgrove, with a mix of dairy, cereal and poultry enterprises accompanying the flower business.
Until recently the farm supplied flowers only via wholesalers and florists. COVID forced the farm to innovate and introduce an online outlet for the business. Flowers can be ordered for delivery anywhere in the country.

Flowers from the farm can also be sourced at the Green Door Farmers Market in Dublin, as well as at the farm itself.
