Visit Irish Grove Farms!

Irish Grove Farms is participating in the Openfields farm tour on May 24th!

Take advantage of this great opportunity to come and see just exactly what it is we're doing with this lovely farm of ours. We'll tour the pastures and visit the grassfed beef cattle. We may even get a peek at some young calves. You could collect an egg or two, climb up a hay shaft to the second floor of a milking barn, or find out exactly what a round barn looks like on the inside. Kids can feed carrots to the horses and goats; families can bring lawnchairs and a picnic and enjoy our hidden pasture for a bit. Better yet, you could just hang for awhile with the wackiest rookie farmers in the area.

Hope to see you!

Hi Jackie!

Thanks for inviting my Dad, Bobbie Jo, and I out too your lovely farm! It was nice too visit with you and family!

Keep up the good work and always keep a big smile on your face because you are the one that brings lots of joy to Irish Grove!

Irish Grove wouldn't be the great farm that it is without you and Marcel running it!

CONGRADULATIONS! Keep up the good work!
