Book into a West Cork Farm Tour and meet innovative farmers and creative food producers. With a strong connection to and love for the land held in trust for the next generation, farming is still very much a family affair.

Head on a West Cork Farm Tour and visit hardworking farmers who live with the seasons where no two days are the same. These farmers want to show visitors where their food is coming from and how it is produced. Come learn what 21st Century farming in West Cork is really like.

Pre-book a tour and visit five local family farms where the owners are only too delighted to welcome you, show you what their farm is about and explain the intricacies of farming whether it be dairy, beef or pork. Each farm is more than a commodity, it’s a way of life.

See the farm where award-winning black and white pudding is produced, say 'hello' to exceptional dairy farmers and journey to the place where Simmental cows graze just a few hundred metres from the Atlantic Ocean.

All the farms are near Clonakilty, Rosscarbery and Skibbereen in County Cork.
