Nestled in the countryside just north of Cork City, The Farm is a unique visitor experience that’s been welcoming families and agriculture enthusiasts alike through its gates for almost a decade now. Spread across its forty acres are a whole host of attractions, ranging from a petting zoo and playground to vintage tractor and machinery displays, plus a recreation of a 1960s village to show what live was like here in Ireland for generations past. There’s even a full restaurant on site to keep the hunger pangs away.
In pre-Covid times an annual feature of The Farm was its annual harvest festival. While this wasn’t able to take place last year, The Farm have just announced that they intend to hold a harvest event on Saturday and Sunday the 4th and 5th of September this year, where a full range of harvest activities and machinery demonstrations are expected to take place over the two days, weather permitting. Understandably, the organisers will have to observe what the Covid restrictions of the time will be – as a result, pre-booking for the event is essential.
To pre-book, or for more information on the event, call The Farm in Ballymorisheen, Grenagh, Co. Cork on 021 4629816 or see www.visitthefarm.ie.
