Experience 80 acres of apple orchard in full bloom this May Bank Holiday 9th Annual Apple Blossom Walk at Boyne Grove Fruit Farm and 60th Anniversary.
Why not join them for a tour of Boyne Grove Fruit Farm in Drogheda, Co. Louth, home of Dan Kelly’s Cider, this May Bank Holiday Weekend on Saturday, 30th April and Sunday, 1st May for our 9th Annual Apple Blossom Walk.
This year’s event is extra special as it marks 60 years since the McNeece family took ownership of the orchard in 1962.
Come walk with them and you will be able to go through the orchard that will be in full blossom, listen to informative talks, find out the importance of bees and sample different products and more.
All of this in aid of SOSAD Ireland, Drogheda Homeless Aid and the Red Cross for the Ukraine crisis response.
As with previous years, their Apple Blossom Walk is part of the Boyne Valley Food Series.
This year’s event will also be supported by the Great Northern Larder who will be supplying a range of hot foods over the weekend.
Admission is between 12pm and 5pm and entry to our event is via the farm gate on the Marsh Road, opposite McManus-Tyres.
Admissions is €5 with all proceeds going to the Drogheda Homeless Aid, the local SOSAD Organisation and the Red Cross for the Ukraine crisis response – Kids and pets go free.
Olan McNeece of Boyne Grove Fruit Farm said, “Seeing our orchard in full bloom is such a special time of year. We’re delighted to be able to share it at this time of year through our event with food and nature lovers alike whilst celebrating our 60th anniversary. It’s such a fun weekend and we love showing people how we make our ciders, telling them the history of the farm and seeing them enjoy the walk around the orchard”.
