Description

The Burrenbeo Winterage Weekend will be held between 26th-29th October, 2017. Events will take place in various locations across the Burren and will celebrate not only the unique farming traditions of the Burren, but also highlight, celebrate and support the broader significance of high nature value farming in shaping much of the Irish landscape.


This vibrant and culturally rich community festival is coordinated by the Burrenbeo Trust and supported by local businesses, donations of time and venues and the general public. Over the weekend there will be numerous events, a few of which have to be booked in advance with us, including the Burren Winterage School and the Herdsmans’ Walks.


Burren Winterage School: A two day gathering focused this year on the theme of ‘Community-inspired innovations for sustainable farming systems’. The School will begin on the evening of Thursday October 26th in the Community Hall of the picturesque village of Ballyvaughan on the northern edge of the Burren and conclude with site visits to Burren farms on Saturday October 28th. Friday 27th will be a day-long series of presentations and workshops in the village, including a dedicated workshop on innovation partnerships.

If you can only attend on the Saturday and the site visits to Burren Farms are of interest, you can book the Farm Demonstrations separately. These will be a guided breakdown with farmer and scientist of the results based farming programme that exists here. (Details to come)

Or perhaps a guided Herdsman Walk on the Saturday may appeal. A 2.5hour walk across the landscape with the local landowner telling the story of this local landscape. This walk is also fundraisers for the local charity, Burrenbeo Trust.

All of these events can be booked here. But for more information on the overall Burren Winterage Weekend see www.burrenwinterage.com

Burrenbeo Trust have absorbed the Eventbrite fees on tickets so that participants don't have to.
