https://youtu.be/tIN3NGWAsMcDuring a class visit, Vincent focuses on the day-to-day jobs that keeps a farmer busy - both on the farm and in the farmhouse. His visit includes an engaging presentation on daily life on the farm and a number of practical demonstrations - including how to make butter and grind corn into flour. He also engages the children in a conversation about the food that we eat - where it comes from and how mainstream methods of farming differ from the traditional model. A field trip to his organic farm in Laois can also be arranged.
Vincent studied geography and the environment and has a passion for farming heritage in Ireland. He has been practicing organic farming in Co. Laois since 1998.
Vincent also provides school tours of Cullahill Mountain - take a virtual tour here:
