One for the kids. Situated a few hundred metres down the hill to the west of Newgrange tomb (or follow the signs on the N51) is a 135-hectare working farm . The truly hands-on, family-run farm allows visitors to feed the ducks and lambs, and tour the exotic bird aviaries. Amiable Farmer Bill keeps things interesting and demonstrations of threshing, sheepdog work and shoeing a horse are absorbing. Sunday at 3pm is a very special time when the ‘sheep derby’ is run. Finding jockeys small enough wasn’t easy, so teddy bears are tied to the animals’ backs. Visiting children are made owners of individual sheep for the race.
