Congrats To Crann Og Eco Farm

Congratulations to Gold Certified Ecotourism Operator Crann Og Eco Farm

Well done to all at Crann Og Eco Farm who are celebrating their new Gold Certification!

We are excited to announce we have just been re-certified by Eco Tourism Ireland as a Gold Certified Ecotourism Operator as of July 2015. This is recognised by the The International Ecotourism Society.
This is a real achievement for us and comes after many years of hard work and creativity. Many thanks to Mary Mulvey and Lorraine Grainger of Eco Tourism Ireland for their encouragement and advice throughout the years.
We previously held Silver Certification for our Kids Eco Yoga Day from 2012 to 2014. This new higher certification encompasses all of our activities here at Crann Og Eco Farm and recognises our strong interpretive environmental ethos and reuse, recycling and reduce practices.
Gold Certification ensures our visitors ‘that green means green’. And we have a new website coming soon, so please stay tuned……
Many many thanks to all the friends and volunteers who have helped over the years to make Crann Og Eco Farm what it is today, we could not have done it without you all!
