Agri Aware’s spring arrivals prove a popular attraction at the Mobile Farm

Families and their little farmers delighted in meeting lots of spring arrivals at Agri Aware’s Mobile Farm in Woodquay Market on Saturday 26 March, 2016 as part of Galway Food Festival.

Agri Aware’s Mobile Farm made its fifth appearance at the Galway Food Festival, proving to be a star attraction at Woodquay Market. Children of all ages had the chance to meet and pet a host of adorable newborn animals including lambs, calves, goats and chicks as well as a Dexter cow and pigs.

The Mobile Farm is a unique outdoor classroom that is used to educate children and adults via a hands-on learning experience. The aim of Agri Aware's Mobile Farm is to educate young and old about the different farm animals on Irish farms and their role in producing quality food that is safe and affordable for consumers.

Woodquay’s Country Market has a long history, rich with tradition, dating as far back as the 1890s, farmers would travel the market to sell their potatoes and other produce such as eggs and butter, make it the perfect location for Agri Aware’s Mobile Farm.
