Open Saturday only – 10.00am – 4.00pm
Murray’s Farm is situated in Aghalee, where Counties Antrim, Down & Armagh meet. Gareth and Christina Murray along with their children Lydia and Euan, run the mixed farm of poultry & polled Dorset sheep. The poultry side of the business is contracted to Moy Park and produces high welfare broilers. The impressive viewing gallery on the farm is of particular interest during Open Farm Weekend, as the public can see the high welfare standards the farm operates under.
With a passion for environmental sustainability, the farm is engaging in a 5-year biodiversity scheme endorsed by the Waitrose Farming Partnership. This includes planting new hedgerows and native/fruit trees, cutting existing hedgerows less often and sowing of wildflower seeds. The family are delighted to participate in Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend as it is wonderful to show the public the story behind the supermarket shelf. They thoroughly enjoy opening their gates and look forward to welcoming you on Saturday.
When visiting Murray’s farm, we are advising visitors to wear appropriate footwear & clothing as it is mandatory to walk through a footbath on arrival. Please be prepared before you arrive so you can enjoy the full farm experience!
