The Irish Farming Community Descended on Letterkenny on Wednesday 18th June 2014 to attend the formal launch of Farmflo’s new Crops 2.0 and mobile app products. The event was held at the CoLab facility where Farmflo is now based.
“As government and EU regulations intensify, we wanted to find some software that could handle some of the reports and paperwork for us. There simply wasn't anything like it out there, so we built it ourselves!” Gareth Devenney, Co-Founder of Farmflo.
