About Glenilen Farm
Resting on the banks of the Ilen River in Drimoleague, County Cork, Glenilen Farm is as picturesque a setting as you could find. As a dairy farm, it has been in Alan Kingston’s family for generations, but a new and unexpected chapter in its history opened when his wife, Valerie, decided to use some of the milk to make yoghurt for a local farmers’ market.
Fast forward some 15 years and what began as a sideline is now a business with an annual turnover of €4 million. Still owned and run by Alan and Valerie, the company now employs 33 people.
