The Village at Wheelock

TOURS

The Wheelocks have been growing fruit on the farm since the 1950s. Today we are still a busy, working fruit farm. We grow a variety of fruits including strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants and rhubarb. Our fruit is then sold to supermarkets, shops, cafés, restaurants and hotels. Wexford is the home of strawberries in Ireland and there is no better place to learn about and experience the magic of Wexford Strawberries than on a real fruit farm in Wexford!

Now at the Village at Wheelocks, we invite you to experience life on a real fruit farm with a tour of our 17-acre site. Your guide will give you a brief history of the farm, the types of fruit we grow here and how we grow them. You will visit our polytunnels where are fruit is grown, learn how to pot a strawberry plant and pick some fruit for yourself. 

Please contact us to arrange a bespoke tour of our farm!
