While the Ballymaloe Cookery School Organic Farm is primarily horticultural, we keep a small number of animals that play an essential role in daily life here. Very simply, we could not do what we do without them.
Visitors to the school and farm will see that our animals enjoy the very best care and living conditions. Their health and happiness directly affects our health and happiness. To quote Darina: "the health of the soil, the health of the plant, the health of the animal and the health of the human are all one and indivisible." If our animals are respected and well treated, it is conveyed into the food we eventually consume.
