Sustaining Ireland Campaign
We invite you to learn about our farms, discovering the various people and families who are producing your food, and the environmentally friendly farming methods that they are using to ensure our shared future is protected for generations to come.
In the absence of being able to visit your local farm due to COVID-19, take a walk around our virtual farm from the comfort of your living room. Learn about the different aspects of farming, animal types, produce and interesting facts.
