The Open Farm Weekends have now started in Family Farm and will continue every weekend throughout the summer!
Each weekend during the peak summer months will see different themes from “Seasonality Sunday” – featuring cookery demos using in season Irish produce prepared by professional chef Edward Hayden, to “Heritage Week” demonstrating the old way of farming life in Ireland with demonstrations of traditional crafts highlighting the importance of family farming across Ireland throughout including butter making, basket making, sheep shearing and spinning.
There will also be a “Women in Farming” weekend where female farmers and entrepreneurs will be on hand to demonstrate their role in the sector.
Each weekend will have experts discussing their craft, livelihood and enterprise and will have fun activities for the whole family. There will also be guided tours around the farm throughout each day, where you can get the opportunity to learn about all the farm animals that are kept here on Family Farm.
Be sure not to miss out on these fun filled weekends. For details on each individual event please head over to http://thefamilyfarm.ie/events/
