IFA online members hub

The IFA is Ireland’s largest farming representative organisation. We have protected and defended the interests of Irish farmers in all sectors for more than 60 years. The IFA have been a Big Dog client for almost 10-years and we have had the pleasure of working on a number of projects including two iterations of the main IFA.ie website.

Client Requirements

As Ireland’s largest farming representative organisation the Irish Farmers Association required an online presence that could amplify the work they do on behalf of their members. IFA.ie is a hub for members news, articles, market reports, legislation updates and their lobbying/campaign work within Ireland and the wider EU market.

The Irish Farmers Association generate large amounts of content on a daily/weekly basis, therefore we took inspiration from other large online media outlets on how to best manage and present content especially given the wide range of sectors and sub-sectors that the IFA represent.

The website relies heavily on the WordPress core functionality of ‘posts’ and advanced categorisation to ensure content is delivered into the correct sector/sub-sector or media type.

Some other key features include a walker-mega-menu to handle the various sectors and departments and a online members portal to showcase benefits and manage subscriptions.
