Meet Our Team
Cloughbane Farm Shop is run by myself Lorna, my husband Sam and sons Robert & Richard. Farming is and always will be in my blood. I came from a mixed dairy, pig, sheep and beef farm. In the good old days everyone mucked in, and I always enjoyed doing the milking. This put me in good stead when I married Sam and changed from being a farmer's daughter to being a farmer's wife! As well as helping on the farm, and bringing up three young children I had a sales job. The experience of being in sales together with my farming knowledge has been a great asset in the venture of running Cloughbane Farm Shop.
Richard our youngest child completed a degree in Environmental Health in 2006. Even though when he started university the Farm Shop did not exist, this has proven to be an invaluable degree in helping build up the Farm Shop. He certainly knows how to keep us all right in health and safety!
Of course without our much-loved Farm we could not have the Farm Shop. This is predominantly run by my husband Sam and our eldest son Robert, although we all 'muck in' with whatever is needed.
As the business has developed we have been able to build a great team around us. Starting out a few years ago, with just a part time butcher we now have over 50 members of staff; within our Butchery, Office, Drivers & Cookroom departments. It has not always been plain sailing, but we feel very proud that we have a happy loyal team. We know we could not forward the business without them.
