An Tairseach Organic Farm & Ecology Centre
Nestled on the coast between the Irish Sea, Vartry River and the Wicklow Mountains is a very special farm, An Tairseach Organic Farm and Ecology Centre, where years of effort 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.
The accreditation 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.
Home to an Ecology Centre, it offers a vast area of 70 acres of gardens, grazing pastures, a wildlife conservation area and a thriving woodland.
People flock to the farm to lap up the natural beauty and tranquility while shopping for an abundance of fresh organic foods.
The Organic Farm Shop is a haven for the healthy, selling a vast array of beautiful fresh produce from homegrown vegetables, fruit and meat as well as a wide range of other organic foods from local suppliers including whole foods and store cupboard ingredients.
You can also pick up ecological toiletries and household cleaning supplies.
Guided walks taking in the spectacular scenery are popular with locals and tourists alike.
The garden is available to walk around if people are booked in for accommodation / retreats or if they attend one of the monthly guided walks. It is a chance to see the organic garden and see for yourself how the vegetables are grown from seedlings in polytunnels for delivery to local markets.
Watch the cattle and pigs graze and enjoy the beauty of this special place with a visit to the conservation site and woodland.
The farm also offers relaxing retreats with a break in a range of modern en suite self-catering bedrooms.
Bookings in advance are a must and people must also book in advance for tours, demonstrations and lessons.
Free to explore its vast acreage during your stay you are guaranteed to leave An Tairseach feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
