The Slane Food Circle 1 1/hr guided daily tour introduces you to the producers and farmers of the Slane Food Circle
This Ireland’s Ancient East Food Tour offer visitors the opportunity to meet like-minded artisan producers on their farms and in their work places to understand what living on and from the land means to them and their families.
Through the Slane Food Circle, visitors get to meet modern pioneering food producers who draw a direct and clear line between the story, heritage, land, food and farming methods used in Slane and the Boyne Valley from the stone age, more than 5,000 years ago, to the present day.
Tours run from 2pm to 3.30pm (1 ½ hours) each day from March to the end of October.
Organic Farm Food Tours run every day except for Sunday. Cider Mill Tours run on Fridays and Sundays, and Meet the Cheesemaker Tours run on Wednesdays.
To meet all four of our producers, join our monthly Sunday afternoon food tour!
Each daily tour will introduce you to one of our producers:
Michael Finegan of Mullagha Farm: a goats cheese maker on a 16th century farm, famous for its Boyne Valley Blue Cheese
Mark Jenkinson of the Cider Mill at Stackallan House: a cider maker of traditional Irish farmhouse ciders and Ireland’s only keeved cider
Jack Rogers of Newgrange Gold at Crewbawn House: producer of cold-pressed oil seeds, including the ancient Camelina Sativa
Carina Conyngham, Countess of Mount Charles at Rock Farm Slane: a pioneering organic farmer with a gold-certified eco-tourism destination on the farm. Bread baking and farm walk.
Sample tastings will be available during each of the tours
