Agri Aware to host free open farm events for general public

Agri Aware is hosting three simultaneous free open farm events in Cork, Dublin and Kildare on bank holiday Monday, May 6.

The three farms are: the Nicholson family’s farm in Crosshaven, Co Cork; the Wards in Fieldstown, Co Dublin; and the Hannons in Co Kildare. Each farm will host a workshop, a cookery demo, a ‘kids zone’ and recount the story behind the Avonmore dairy brand.

Deirdre O’Shea, Agri Aware’s executive director, said: “The three farms will allow consumers a rare chance to experience first-hand what happens on a working farm.”
