Farming is a way of life, day to day, season to season but is really a labour of love. Our home & farming life are intrinsically intwined. It is a privileged way of life with everyday ups & downs that keep one in touch with reality and Mother Nature Herself. As a society we are becoming more digital in most aspects of daily living, even farming is becoming a digital business for many. Organic farming aims to keep abreast of these digital times but also aims to keep the integrity of Nature respected and intact.
This website will hopefully provide a space for insights into this remarkable way of life here in the West of Ireland, by way of blog posts with visual imagery relaying the seasonal activities which take place here at Ahena Organic Farm.

Set Mindfulness Themed Classes will be run separately and are designed for further exploration of self. Using an integration of many ancient & modern philosophies with some CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) exercises these classes are for persons who are looking for more process in personal development which are only very lightly touched on in our regular class.
