Millbank Farm in Killinchy is a sixth-generation family farm established in 1889. Owned by the McGowan family, Adrian and his youngest daughter Emily work as a team in running the farm and helping to build its current vegetable, sheep and poultry lines.
Emily put her own stamp on the future of Millbank Farm last year when she opened a farm shop in Saintfield high street just six miles away from the family farm. Selling over 40 varieties of vegetables grown and picked from their fields to the shop shelves, it’s hard to be beaten for freshness and quality.
The McGowan’s participate in Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend to engage with families and share in their excitement of seeing their farm and also highlight their environmentally considerate farming methods to the public.
They are a true Northern Ireland farming success story and we are delighted to have them back on board for 2020.
