Meet the Food Producers Crafting Modern Food from Ancient Methods
The modern pioneering food producers of the Slane Food Circle harness the rich flavours of the Boyne Valley to create nutritious, flavoursome food with a provenance that connects people, land, and heritage.
The historic and idyllic village of Slane is located in County Meath, at the heart of the Boyne Valley.
The Boyne is named after the Celtic goddess Boann who symbolises water, fertility and inspiration. And there’s a direct and clear line between the story, heritage, land, food and farming methods used in Slane today and those that were in use in the Boyne Valley in the stone age more than 5,000 years ago!
Hear the stories that connect past and present. And savour the flavours of this fertile river valley when you explore Slane with the locals. Join a Slane Food Circle tour to build a picture of life in the Boyne Valley, or visit one of our producers for an in-depth experience of the Boyne’s way of life.
You’ll get to meet the producers who draw on the valley’s traditions and ancient techniques to produce delicious goats’ cheese, cider, organic vegetables, and more!
