Description

Meet your host Andrew or Sharon at their farmhouse and get to know each other over a cup of coffee and freshly baked scones, before you head out for a tour of their family dairy. You'll learn about how the dairy produces milk, before Andrew drives you over to the fields where you'll hear about the local history of the farm, and will also discover how Irish farmers work with the grass growing seasons to produce the best quality milk. 

After your tour, join Sharon in her spacious farm kitchen to learn to cook an authentic Irish meal created from family recipes. Your hands-on cooking class will last about two hours, and you'll learn to cook three Irish dishes from scratch. You'll bake a traditional Irish soda bread, churn own own butter from milk from the farm and prepare an Irish stew, before you sit down at a farmer’s style table to share the meal you helped prepare.

Join this family for an unforgettable farm and culinary adventure in County Limerick!

A fun, warm and loving couple, Sharon and Andrew make you feel like part of the family the moment you enter their home. Andrew runs the family-owned dairy that produces milk for the famous Kerry Gold butter! Sharon’s biggest passion in life is cooking for her family and friends.
Her cooking knowledge was gained through years of experience, first from her mother and as she worked in the hospitality industry all over the world. Her interest in hospitality took Sharon all the way to Singapore to open an Irish pub. Sharon is known to brew her own kombucha and milk kefir and makes soft cheese and yogurt from milk produced from their farm.

The couple lives on a farmhouse with their three children who are equally enthusiastic in the kitchen. The family farms beside the famous working monastery, Glenstal Abbey and close to the Wild Atlantic Way, and enjoy sharing with travelers stories about their family farm, its history and the advantages of a seasonal production system. 

Please note: If you decide to make a stew (and you chose the dairy farm tour), you might start your cooking class before breaking for your farm tour to take advantage of the time it takes to prepare the stew.
