Interview: Niall Delargy
When did you decide you wanted to be an egg farmer?
Niall: I was keen to get into farming and started off with only twelve hens which were kept in a shed and that is how the business started. Small beginnings I know, but you have to start somewhere.
What does a typical day involve?
Niall: “Anything and everything. As any small business owner will tell you it really is hands on. Duties include daily inspection, grading and packing of produce, ensuring that our working environment is kept to a safe and hygienic standard, maintenance and upkeep, liaison with customers, delivering produce, keeping on top of sales, marketing and accounts. I truly am a jack of all trades!”
Heavy snowfall in March brought with it devastation and absolute chaos. How did you recover?
Niall: Thats a time I would prefer to forget “but never will.” The heavy snow caused one of my poultry houses and egg packing facilities to completely collapse leaving nothing except the debris of a successful egg business.
It basically me him back at square one; however, I managed to keep my business running under very difficult conditions.
