About An Tairseach Organic Farm & Ecology Centre
An Tairseach Organic Farm and Ecology Centre has allowed nature to flourish in all its glory. The farm in Wicklow Town has been at the forefront of the organic food movement acquiring organic status back in 2006. They acquired organic status in 2006. This was the culmination of several years of intensive work, clearing the soil of chemicals, restoring its fertility, improving hedgerows, laying out pathways and planting thousands of trees. The farm now produces an abundance of organic vegetables as well as organic beef and pork. There is a large garden with polytunnels at the back of the Ecology Centre building and a 70-acre site up on the hill. As well as the vegetables and animal grazing areas there is also a wildlife conservation area and a thriving woodland.
