Welcome to Ballylagan Organic Farm
Located twenty minutes’ drive from Belfast in the village of Straid, County Antrim, Ballylagan Organic Farm was the first in Northern Ireland to open a fully organic farm shop – we were privileged to have the patron of the Soil Association, HRH the Prince of Wales cut the ribbon. Since then the farm has continued to thrive and we look forward to welcoming you to our on farm Tea Room and Guesthouse.
At Ballylagan we care about food and how its produced. Whether its livestock or vegetable crops, the method of production is reflected in the quality of the food. We always strive to limit our inputs to what nature intended. This means grass for cattle and sheep and farm yard manure for vegetables and very little else. We believe that it’s what is not in organic food that sets it apart from intensively farmed foods produced by the agro-chemical industry.
The purpose of this website is to involve you with the farm, - its livestock, its fruit and its vegetables, its nascent woodland, its power generation. We want you to experience some of the joys of food production, the highs and lows, to understand why sometimes we have surplus crops and sometimes we have no crop at all.
Whether you’re vegetarian, omnivore or carnivore, there should always be something of interest on the site. But more importantly, whatever your preference, we’ll always have some good food to sell you.
We look forward to seeing you.
