In 2010 Alex & Carina Mount Charles took on a 150 acres of the Slane Castle Estate at the Rock Farm, Slane on the South banks of the River Boyne. The estate has been in Alex’s family for over 300 years.
The Rock Farm is now an organic farm with a herd of cattle on the majority of pasture and a small holding on the previously redundant Upper Lime Kiln field. The small holding includes a veg patch set in a 3 acre forest garden. Alex and Carina also keep rare breed pigs & chickens and dexter cattle.
Having successful entertained over 100 organic farming volunteers (WWOOFERS www.wwoof.ie) and other guests from around the world for the past 3 years, the Mount Charles’s look forward to welcoming families and friends to their luxury eco camp opposite Slane Castle.
