What You’ll Do
Discover the workings of a blackcurrant farm as Des and his two golden retrievers Molly and Sofie (don’t worry they are very friendly) take you on a tour through the fascinating life cycle of his blackcurrants and learning how these Irish berries became interwoven in Wexford’s cultural history.
You’ll see the hedgehog piles, the bird boxes and wildlife habitats that all contribute to sustainable production as well as the young horses and breeding mares that graze the land. You can even give a carrot to Tom, Sooty and Beauty, the farm’s donkeys.
On returning to the farmyard and home, you will enjoy a delicious blackcurrant cocktail (non-alcoholic)
