Ambassador Series of Farm Walks Announced

19 farm walks will take place from May through to September. These walks are hosted by Farming for Nature Ambassadors as a knowledge sharing opportunity for other farmers  to gain an insights into incorporating, protecting  and enhancing nature on their land. There is a great diversity of ambassadors hosting farm walks this year covering a range of farming systems from dairy, beef, sheep, equine, mixed farming and even alpaca farming.

A dairy series of farms walks is new for 2024. In June, a series of four walks will take place on ambassador dairy farms in Co. Laois (Bruce Thompson & David Kerr) and Co Limerick (Tom Stack & Gearóid Maher).

Sarah Coonan,  Network & Engagement Officer at Farming for Nature said “Irish farmers want to do the best for the land and for future generations.  These walks provide a wonderful roadmap for how to do just that on that any farm. There’s one thing that’s clear and that’s that there is no one way to farm for nature. Our ambassador farm walks  represent the wide diversity in Irish farming systems and approaches to farming with nature in mind. From incorporating ponds into intensive dairying to using beef cattle to prevent wildfires, the range of actions are wide ranging”

The Farming for Nature Ambassdor walks cost €10 to attend. Bookings are now open for all 19 farms walks.  Places are limited, Book Here
