A relatively new edition to Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend, D&D Holland is a sheep farm in Articlave, owned by Don & Dorothea Holland with a 800 strong sheep herd that thrive year on year, grazing happily on its fertile farmland.
A recent new venture into agri-tourism has been made possible for the Holland’s thanks to their close proximity to the picturesque towns of Castlerock, Portstewart and Portrush. This idyllic location on the North Coast will mean their self-catering cottage will be in high demand in future summer months.
Don and Dorothea enjoy participating in Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend as they recognise the art of farming has diminished through the years.
Whereas before most people had a relation that was involved with farming, nowadays this is not always the case.
The husband and wife team still want to keep the magic alive for today’s children and highlight what happens on a working farm and ultimately where their food on their plate comes from.
