We are delighted to welcome Millbank Farm, home to the McGowan family participating in their first Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend!
This beautiful sixth generation vegetable and chicken farm is located in the picturesque village of Killinchy, Co Down. The family at Millbank grow a variety of fresh local produce, including vegetables, livestock and cereals. Their main products are turnips, leeks, chicken, and lamb.
Visitors will be able to see sheep shearing demonstrations, machinery demonstrations in vegetable fields and drone demonstrations throughout the day. There will be vintage farm machinery and tractors on display to demonstrate how the farm and farming in general has evolved.
There be a children’s play area with giant sand pit, along with a wide range of games and activities!
The whole family will also be able to enjoy a farm walk incorporating a nature trail and treasure hunt which will showcase the planting work the farm has undertaken to ensure a positive contribution to the environment and animal habitats.
