A visit to Ballycross Apple
is a visit to a REAL working farm, unlike other open farms that are purpose built. The Farm and its buildings date back to 1863. Ballycross Apple Farm is based in Bridgetown Co. Wexford, It has been called a 'Hidden Treasure' and with our beautiful stone courtyard, horses heads bowing in and out of their stables, the chirping of birds and the wafting smell of home baked waffles and crêpes, it is a perfect place to enjoy an afternoon with your family.
You can see animals in their paddocks or housed in the beautiful stone built courtyard in their pens.
The farm itself is kept as natural as possible to allow people to enjoy nature at its best through our pains takenly hand built trails which cover the entire farm. Approximately 3 kilometres. You can view the river, canal, orchards and other beautiful areas of the farm which are full of wild flora and fauna. We take pride in our farm is its natural beauty with the trails themselves being a landscape playground to encourage children's imagination and to appreciate nature in its unspoilt form.
The Farm trails vary from relatively good surface to being quite rugged, but there is a trail for all customers and all ages. Buggies are not recommended but in drier weather customers have informed us that certain trails are easily done.
We encourage a very informal atmosphere where people meet and chat and where kids make new friends. Our Waffle and Crêpe Bar is extremely popular . The farm shop is packed with a selection of different varieties of apples and of course our homemade apple and other juices. We also stock our own excellent chutney and honey(availability seasonal) and we also stock jams and some complimentary items.
Ballycross is one of the few places you can visit where you can see , how what you buy is grown and produced. You know you are getting the very best!
