About Murtagh's Organic Farm
Chris has been in organic farming for over 35 years but took a step back from traditional farming to embrace organic & sustaining biodiversity to focus solely on organics and developing the natural land. We are very passionate about biodiversity and preserving and developing our natural farmland habitat. Chris has put many, many years into preserving our natural wildlife and native woodland. He has wild bird cover, preserved bogland for 15 years which has developed into a wonderland of bog cotton and diverse wildlife, there are 6 acres of birch and 30 acres of untouched forestry. In the last 5 years over 12,000 trees have been planted.
The animal rescue was opened in 2021 where we started rescuing farm animals and wildlife.
Across the farm there are bat boxes, bird boxes and recently teamed up with John from the Barn Owl Project to establish the Westmeath Barn Owl Project. We are committed to keeping the farm as natural as possible to continue to preserve wildlife, rescue animals, and sustain biodiversity. Chris & Gráinne look forward to opening the farm & forestry with our wildlife & nature park in the coming year.
