Grass Roots! Tour 3 Magical Farms in Rural Wexford!

HomeMagical Farms in Rural Wexford

Join me on one of my famous farm tours! Lets go gallivanting away from the busy towns and beaches and into the heart of the model county as I bring you to three of my favourite farms!



Seasonal Tastings of jams and chutneys and 500ml Sparkling Nettle Drink at A generous farmhouse lunch. This is a showcase lunch so each one will be unique, but we will showcase other local farms and producers and you can be sure that the bread and butter was made that morning by Catherine, the honey comes from the farm a few fields over as do the eggs. Think simple, fresh, authentic farmhouse food. Collection from Gorey Train Station just as the train from Dublin arrives back in time for the return train

Bring along

Flat-soled shoes. Runners or trainers are fine but as you will be visiting working farms, there is always the chance you might accidentally step into animal poo, so maybe leave the sandals at home!

Further Information

Our tour begins at Goreys Train Station just as the Dublin Train arrives. Here I will be waiting to greet you. And our story begins…

As we depart and move through Gorey, you’ll learn a little of this remarkable Market Town and its links with Ireland’s food story, but we won’t be there long as we head towards

Here ready to meet us will be farmer and owner Fiona. The Wildabout brand is a nationally recognised brand that has won numerous awards including the Blas na hEireann (The Irish Food Oscars) Supreme Champion! A truly remarkable feat when you see how small yet dense their biodiversity farm is. Wild elder grows beside marrows, wandering hens hunt down slugs and the polytunnel is packed with nutritious and delicious nettles! Wander around and hear Fionas story that took her from making documentaries in the UK to making chutneys in the south east!

A short wander down the lane, is Dots Plots, home to a rotating number of rescued Donkeys as they await their Forever Home. Here you will meet Jody, their primary carer and protector who will take you to meet her own two donkeys. These ladies just love visitors and even more, if you happen to have some of their favourite treats, nettles! Here you will find out how the donkey became so intrinsically linked with rural Ireland, despite originating in Africa! And how you make friends with a donkey properly, using “donkey manners”

Now its time to get back on board as we travel to Salt Rock Dairy. A short drive away this hillside farm overlooking the sea is home to the Kinsella family, and you will be meeting Catherine Kinsella, a dairy farmer who refuses to “Go Big” Salt Rock milk is only available to people living within 20km of the farm and sold via a mobile vending machine into refillable glass bottles. It’s also traditional non-homogenised milk, the good stuff, where the cream rises to the top! 

But before we explore the farm with Catherine, we’ll be sitting down at her table to enjoy a gorgeous traditional farmhouse lunch, think boiled eggs, freshly baked bread, yogurt and butter straight from the dairy and lots more to enjoy. You won’t leave the table hungry! 

With bellies full, its time to explore the milking parlour, the creamery and meet some of the cows! Discover the challenges and joys of farming in modern Ireland before filling your own mini bottle of milk to take home. 

Finally as we reach the end of the day, there is an optional choice to visit Goreys Main street to make a stop at Wexfords oldest grocer to pick up some locally made chocolate, cordials, bacon, jam…….. or into Frenches Pub, the oldest Pub in Wexford, said to have the best Guinness outside of James Gate! 

But we promise that if you took the train to us, we will have you back at the station for the return journey!
