Rock Farm, Slane
Rock Farm Slane is a glamping, ecotourism and activity centre and organic farm on the Slane Castle estate, in the Boyne Valley, stretching for 1.5km along the banks of the River Boyne. The long track to the farm takes in the views of Slane Village and the Hill of Slane as you wind through fields of barley, agroforestry, cows, chickens and horses to the Limehouse Ecolodge beyond which has been built out of straw from the barley around us.
They are certified by The Organic Trust under the trading name Conynghams and are proud to include beef, pork, egg-laying poultry and horticulture under our organic licence.
Carina and Alex started farming in 2010 when they took on a lonely old farm known locally as the Rock, on the other side of the river from Slane Castle. They immediately threw ourselves into organic farming and have depended on the help and advice from good friends, neighbours (including the members of The Slane Food Circle) and other organic farmers from around the country and further afield; as well as the goodwill and enthusiasm of Wwoofers and other volunteers.
It is this enthusiasm and knowledge-sharing that has got us where we are today and we are massively grateful for that.
Experience Rock Farm for yourself and their weekly Farmer's Markets or on one of their tours.
