Jonathan Marry is a second generation Pig Farmer in Dowth, Drogheda, Co. Meath. He is now running the farm established by his Father Jack in the 1970’s. It was while undertaking this daily visit to the creamery as a young man that Jack realised there was an over-supply of milk, this led him into pig farming. Over the next 40 years Jack became one of Ireland’s most respected and influential pig farmers, pioneering many methods that improved quality and animal welfare.
Jonathan has continued in his father’s footsteps since taking over the farm. Running the farm single handed for almost 10 years he has continued the Marry family tradition of hard work and ingenuity. A real passion for quality and pride in his produce led him to establish www.pigspit.ie
In 2015 Jonathan won the prestigious FBD “Young Farmer of the Year”. This significant award recognised Jonathan’s accomplishments on and off the farm since his father’s passing in 2008. The rapid growth of www.pigspit.ie has demonstrated his passion for quality Irish pork and his ability to deliver this quality product from his farm to your fork. www.farmersjournal.ie
