These farm walks are an opportunity for the Farming For Nature farmers to showcase their contribution to nature and good farming practices on their land. The walks are €5 to attend and you have to register in advance as spaces are limited. All monies go to a charity selected by the farmer or to our umbrella charity, Burrenbeo Trust.
What are the farm walks:
- This will be an approximate 3-hour session on the farm includes a walk around with the farmer, looking at some of the habitats and species present, as well as the livestock and/or crops, and discussing with the farmer how he/she/they manage the land in support of nature.
- The farmer/farm family will lead the event but may also be supported by a relevant professional if they wish – either known to the farmer or organised by FFN.
- As numbers are restricted to 35, you have to book a place beforehand through our booking system then you will receive exact details of where to meet etc.
- These walks are for farmers and people with an interest in farming for nature, they are not suitable for children.
- These walks are non-profit but a booking fee is necessary to minimise the level of no-shows. It is €5 to register and this donation will either go to a selected charity of the farm or to the Farming For Nature initiative through it’s umbrella charity the Burrenbeo Trust.
- Please wear suitable footwear for uneven and potentially muddy conditions.
- We would ask that you please respect these farmers, their land and livestock when visiting. Dogs are not welcome.
- These events has been jointly supported by Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine and the National Parks and Wildlife Service.
