The Slane Food Circle Afternoon Food Tour is a guided tour that offers 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.
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.
These producers include:
Michael Finegan of Mullagha Farm: a goats cheese maker on a 16th century farm, famous for its Boyne Valley Blue Cheese
Mark Jenkinson of 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
The tour includes tastings of the produce and a Slane Food Circle platter with flatbread at the end.
Tours run on the first Sunday of every month from beginning of March to the end of October.
