BEHIND THE SCENES
ABOUT OUR TOURS:
We don't have dedicated full-time guides, but we do try to make time when possible
to give behind the scenes tours of our farm and food production facility.
On a typical tour we will dig up some potato plants with our Farm Manager, journey with the spud through the production lines, enjoy a birds eye view of our fruit and vegetable packhouse from our very own 'skywalk' and witness the transformation of a surplus spud into sustainable potato starch.
COST OF TOURS:
€25 per person in the group (reduced rates for local school groups)
We only cater for groups of 6 or more.
Please note: that we do not have a full time tour guide and can only accommodate group tours when our commercial and production schedules suit.
If you are interested, please submit a request below. We will review all requests on the second Thursday of each month and respond thereafter by email.
