He visited the farm on the invitation of local Ulster Unionist Councillor Jill Macauley.
She commented: “I was delighted to bring our Deputy Lord Mayor Kyle Savage along to Weir Farms this week to let him see for himself the fantastic Milk Vending Machine venture they have started just a month ago! And what a busy month for the family farm it has been, as they have been blown away by the popularity of their milk and milkshake selection with customers in the surrounding area.
“Their farm fresh milk from their unique red and white cows, is gently pasteurised on their family farm in Rathfriland It’s natural and tastes great!
