PROJECT SUMMARY

Purchase of equipment to increase the number of attractions on offer at Clementsmount Fun Farm.

BACKGROUND

Clementsmount Farm, situated outside Crumlin has been in existence for over 30 years but just ten years ago business owner, Breidge McAlister combined operating the working farm with running a children’s nursery. From this a Fun Farm developed where the family’s passion for farming combined with Breidge’s love of caring for children.  Now the business is a successful day out attraction welcoming almost 5,000 individuals and groups per year.  Then Breidge saw a niche in the activity market to introduce zorbing, an activity which would target teenagers, groups and even parents to visit the Fun Farm and join in the fun.
