Our Farm School

The Ballymaloe Organic Farm School is an exciting new venture led by Darina Allen, Co-Founder of the world renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School, Sustainable Food advocate and Farming for Nature Ambassador.

Its mission is to educate and empower people to value and practise the principles of sustainable food production and consumption, regenerative farming and regenerative lifestyle to create a climate positive and equitable food system.

Students will learn how to

  • Re-think food systems and culture
  • Re-learn how to live, cook and eat sustainably
  • Re-define what is possible through resource efficiency and technology

This is an immersive, hands-on, boots on the ground learning experience with students learning from and working alongside subject matter experts on topics such as Soil Health, Regenerative Farming, Organic Food, Biodiversity and Pollinators, Farm to Fork Food Production and Agroforestry. We run short and long courses for all levels such as Seed Saving, Composting, Beekeeping, Planting and Caring for Orchards, Cheesemaking, Homesteading and Urban Growing.
