About the Hill Farming Committee

  • The Hill Farmers Committee represents 20,000 hill farmers.
  • The main objective to the Committee is to improve farm income and to seek supports through various measures which are necessary to sustain in these difficult areas.
  • The membership of the Committee is drawn from those counties that have a high proportion of hill land.
  • The Committee deals with all aspects of CAP both Pillar I and Pillar II as it affects hill farmers.
  • It is also involved in the recreational use of hill land mainly through the walks scheme and through involvement with Comhairle na Tuaithe.
