Rock Farm Slane
Founded by Alex and Carina Conyngham (Earl and Countess of Mount Charles), Rock Farm is a 90 acre organic farm situated on the Slane Castle estate along the banks of the River Boyne just opposite the Castle and Distillery.
As the eldest son of Henry, 8th Marquess Conyngham, Alex grew up on the estate which has been in the Conyngham family since 1703. With such a long connection to this land, both Alex and Carina are passionate farmers and have become pioneers of ecotourism in Ireland.
The historic Slane estate village is located in County Meath at the heart of the Boyne Valley which is appropriately named after the Celtic goddess Boann who symbolises water, fertility and inspiration.
Early Stone Age farmers settled in this area and built the burial tombs at Brú Na Boinne six thousand years ago, thanks to the lush, fertile soil sitting on limestone bedrock that they knew would yield nurturing and flavoursome food of the highest quality.
