Yes! we put our Active Retirement visitors into our Educational Itinerary. The reason being that they are interested in life-long learning. To date many Actively Retired people have had fun learning experiences at Cloncannon
Biofarm. The farm tour usually open with the Eco log house, the farm residence, and the description of the structure and the various eco materials used throughout the house. We then focus on the farm management practices and the organic farming principles entailed in food production.
We produce organic, beef, chickens, potatoes,vegetables, soft fruit and keep honeybees. We share knowledge of crop rotation, soil fertility and pest/disease control. We then ramble up to the old stone dwelling (c.1850) and the old creamery for a sharing of nostalgic stories. But no visitor can ever give a true picture of how life was in the fine ring fort on the farm.
A visit to the farm is never complete without a hands-on session at one of the various habitats on the farm. The most popular is the exploring the mini beast in the stream. We stroll by the farm animals and back to the house for a relaxing cup of tea.
The tour takes approximately 2 hours and we charge 7 euro per adult. There are several other sites of interest close bye which could help your group fill the days’ outing. These include Moneygall (President Obamas’ ancestral home), Roscrea Heritage town; Cloughjordan Eco-village; Nenagh Castle and Heritage Centre; Holycross Abbey and Shanballyedmond Court Tomb near Rearcross.
