Irish Farming Is Rearing To Go is a new Irish farming charity calendar released as the final event of Agricultural Mental Health Week.

The calendar was officially launched on October 16 with all proceeds to be divided between two farming based charities, Teac Tom and Embrace Farm Ireland.

The calendar showcases all that’s good about Irish agriculture including dairy, beef, sheep, pigs, poultry, contractors, tillage and farm safety. Photos in the calendar are taken from farms across Ireland.

Ag Mental Health Week is an event spearheaded by Aherla dairy farmers, Peter and Paula Hynes.

The aim of the week, that finished last Friday, ran from October 10 to October 16, and highlighted the importance of mental health awareness in agriculture circles.
