Welcome to Talamh Beo

Welcome to Bridget Murphy’s Farm

Bridget’s 125 acre farm is located in Dromard, County Sligo and includes 25 hectares of commonage. The farm is situated on a steep hillside, which grants it the most wonderful views across the county, including a beautiful profile of Ben Bulben in the distance.

Whilst Bridget’s farming activities were primarily sheep farming for the past two decades, she is transitioning from conventional sheep-farming to bees, seed & agroforestry. This was, in part, a transition brought on by health issues. Bridget also keeps ponies in order to diversify the grazing regimes, which ensures her land is well maintained and the plants species are in balance. Learn more about a year on Bridgi’s farm in the video below.
