9th April at 8pm.  Just Register here

Liam and Justina Gavin run Drumanilra Organic Farm on the shores of Lough Key, Co. Roscommon. They manage a 300-acre mixed livestock and horticulture farm. They farm a herd of pedigree Irish Dexter cattle, a flock of Jacob sheep and a flock of laying hens. The organic animal produce is processed locally and sold direct to their customers via their farm shops/restaurants. The market garden produces organic salads and vegetables which also supply their restaurant business. A Holistic Planned Grazing system is practised on the farm and multi-species herbal leys have been sown to help regenerate soil and provide nutritionally dense food for the animals. Habitats on the farm include pockets of mature broadleaf forestry, wetlands along the lake shore and mature habitats running throughout the farm.  More information on their farm here.
