Many of us are fans of sustainable food and farming, but do we really know what goes into it? Well now you can find out all the secrets through the medium of honey (yum!) on a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience at Brookfield Farm in Ireland. Here you will meet Ailbhe Gerrard, a passionate, certified organic farmer, beekeeper and educator who will share with you her secrets to crafting the most delicious and sustainable honey of the island.
Ailbhe has a deep interest in farming as a holistic, regenerative activity and, at Brookfield Farm, runs a wide variety of sustainability projects. The land boasts a stunning mix of wildflower meadows, beehives, sheep, orchards, arable crops, a native broadleaf tree plantation and a truffle orchard.
For Ailbhe, her project innovation is all about the transformation of the farm. She recently told the Irish Farmers Journal: “My aim is not only about running different enterprises and making an income from the farm, it is also about integrating the enterprises into a climate-friendly and biodiversity-supporting regenerative agriculture whole.”
Enjoy a delicious Farm-to-Table lunch and leave with bags of new knowledge, and probably some honey too.
