About Moy Hill Farm
What is our vision?
Our main objective is to educate our community on organic growing and sustainable living, while providing food and a common space for any and all people in the community, no matter their age, ethnicity or social status. We would like for Moy Hill to be somewhere that people want to naturally spend time at, whether it is to plant some trees, flowers or herbs or if it is just to come and read a book or to hang out to view our beautiful area. The love of nature and the outdoors is the common bond and it is a great way to start meeting other people. It will be there for lifetimes and generations to enjoy.
