Gortbrack Organic Farm offers guided Organic Food and Habitat trails, including seasonal nature orienteering, practical outdoor activities, treasure hunt and a farm tour.

Our farm has a diverse range of ecological and native Irish habitats, ranging from wildlife ponds, bog land, stonewalls, hedges and woodlands to organic vegetables, herbs, polytunnels (all weather), composting, living willow sculptures and the donkeys and ducks.

Themes from below can be chosen as a focus for the trip:

  • Local organic food
  • Water
  • Soil & compost photosynthesis
  • The carbon cycle
  • Bugs in the garden
  • Botany  & seed saving
  • Renewable energy

  • Biodiversity

All groups are welcome to book with us. We have worked with primary and secondary schools, scouts and girl guides, community based groups, special interest groups and many more.

Individual tours between 2 and 4 people are €25 per person. This is a guided 2 hours tour that covers all habitats at the farm. Bookings by appointment only to gortbrackorg@gmail.com or call Ian 0879246968 or Eileen 0879246967
