"The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings."
– Fergal Smith
🏄♂️Fergal Smith is a big-wave surfer and pioneering farmer, two words that don't often go in the same sentence.
👨🌾He juggles his time between growing veg and paddling into 30ft slabs of Atlantic ocean swells! I spent a couple of days helping out at Moy Hill, getting my hands in the soil and helping the team fill their 90x veg boxes to be sent out that week.
🌳 What I hope comes across in the conversation is Ferg's eloquent sincerity, the courage that it took and his vision to inspire a new generation of 'growers' and planting seeds for future generations (they’ve already planted 18,000 trees!)
