Burren Free Range Pork is a member of the Burren Ecotourism which is a network of tourism enterprises in the Burren, who demonstrate ecotourism ‘best practice’, positively discriminate in each other’s favour, provide ‘one voice’ representation on issues impacting the Burren (where appropriate), and inspire conservation activism. We are also a Tourism Partner of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geo Park. The Burren & Cliffs of Moher region achieved UNESCO-supported Global Geopark Status in recognition of the region’s significant geological, ecological and cultural value, as well as its sustainable tourism practices. Both organisations are committed to the promotion of responsible tourism that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people. They work together to promote ‘The Burren & Cliffs of Moher Geopark’ as a leading sustainable visitor destination, celebrated for high standards in visitor experience, conservation and learning to ensure economic, social and environmental benefits for local communities, visitors and the region itself.

We collaborate with all stakeholders to collectively develop the Geopark as a sustainable tourism destination.  We are actively involved in the Conservation and Advocacy (CONAD) subgroup of the Burren Ecotourism network (BEN) that carry out activities to enhance the  environment of the wider local communities through the bi-annual Adopt a Hedgerow- clean up scheme,  the annual  Burren Food Fayre and Meitheil.

We offer quality information and interpretation to communicate our stories and the unique character of our place to guests.  We showcase a traditional small holding in a region rich in agricultural, archaeological, geological and botanical features.
