We are certified by The Organic Trust under the trading name Conynghams (cert no. 1109) and are proud to include beef, pork, egg-laying poultry, turkeys and horticulture under our organic licence.
We started farming in 2010 when we took on a lonely old farm known locally as the Rock, on the other side of the river from Slane Castle. We immediately threw ourselves into organic farming and have depended on the help and advice from good friends, neighbours (including the members of The Slane Food Circle) and other organic farmers from around the country and further afield; as well as the goodwill and enthusiasm of interns and volunteers. It is this enthusiasm and knowledge-sharing that has got us where we are today and we are massively grateful for that.

We are currently running a growing Farmer’s Market every Thursday from 3pm – 6pm. As well as organic meat and vegetables from Rock Farm, you can shop with our other stallholders who have goodies such as; local cider, candles, hats, gluten free cakes and delicious takeaway food on offer.
Customers now also have the choice to order online through NeighbourFood. This allows you to put together a shop from a variety of producers in the area, pay online and collect from our market on Thursday’s.
Christmas 2020 update: We are taking orders for bronze organic turkeys, organic hams, as well as organic pork, beef and breakfast packs from 5th November 2020. Please download the brochure here for more details and our order form:Rock Farm Slane Organic Xmas Food Brochure
