ESSENTIAL FOOD TRAILS

Sliabh Aughty Farm to Fork Experience

To the west of the mighty river Shannon, Galway is Irelands’ hidden heartland of artisan farming. Here is simply a way of life, to live you must farm; to survive you must adapt and be creative. From the young farmer facing the challenge of taking on the family farm moving from sheep to snails to the sourdough baker kneading bread at midnight. The beekeeper producing health giving honey from bees gathering
wildflower nectar and the next generation dairy farmer creating a new style of cheese.
Without an industrial revolution and too much bogland to be considered for commercial development parts of the Galway landscape have remained untouched. As a happy result, ancient forests remain with a diversity of tree species, the woodland floor rich edible plants and mushrooms making them a foragers heaven.

Sliabh Aughty is one of the largest but least know mountain ranges in Ireland.  A region with a strong folklore and tradition of medicinal plants that grow in the woodlands and hedgerows. Wild garlic, vetch, self-heal and a myriad of edible wild plants with nutritional and medicinal benefits.

These skills and knowledge, in danger of being lost, are being revived and celebrated by producers and creative chefs cooking in an ancient method over wood.  Plan your visit, be part of sustaining a way of life.
