Acton House Farm

The farm has been in the Best family for four generations, since John’s great Grandfather bought it in 1921. At that time it was primarily a pig and beef farm. Today, John, Simon & Rory (father and sons), along with  farm labourers run the farm. Over the years, there have been various breeds of beef cattle and sheep on the farm and we’ve grown various crops including linseed, lupins, rye and potatoes. 
 
John and Simon now focus on wheat, oats, oil seed rape and feed beans,whilst Rory looks after the Aberdeen Angus herd.
 
There is also a green waste recycling system which uses municipal green waste to produce compost for use on our own land.
 
The family enjoy participating in Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend and feel this is a real opportunity to help bridge the gap between consumers and producers.  They feel it is vital to show how much time, effort and pride the farmers and producers around the country put into their produce; alongside educating children about food.
