Tillage and Crop Farming Tour

Dive into the world of Irish crop farming with one of our escorted tours! Embark on a journey to learn about horticulture in Ireland and how Irish soil fertility makes wheat and barley farming the dominant crops. We take you to farms cultivating cereal and fodder crops or growing potatoes. Learn from experts at Teagasc, Ireland's Agriculture and Food Development Authority, on the newest research at their Crop Science campus in Oak Park, Co. Carlow.

With Farm Tours Ireland you will tour farms with the highest average yields in the world. Chat to the farmers, earn about their methods of production, challenges faced and marketing of their product. Engage with leading tillage experts, animal feed compounders and grain merchants. Visit a potato processing plant and take a tour of the factory.
