20th MAY: Making Nature a Priority in our Farm Business with Kate Egan. Register for this webinar at – https://bit.ly/WebinarKateEgan
Kate runs a 9-acre chemical free farm dedicated to biodiversity and permaculture in Ballymore, Co. Westmeath. She bought the farm with her partner, Tom in 2016 and is a good example of what can be achieved both in terms of habitat building and yield production in a short amount of time. Kate’s products include mainly annual vegetables, fruit and hen eggs, which are sold at a nearby market, helping to reduce food miles and support the local economy. She is a building up a farm that is climate resilient and incorporates wildlife into all parts of the farm. “Our first priority is offering a sanctuary, providing an oasis for wildlife”. Kate is a Farming For Nature Ambassador from 2019.
