Gurteen College – McDonald’s Flagship Farm Fieldtrip
As part of the Susliving Third Level Programme in Gurteen College, Susliving recently arranged for students of the Environmental and Sustainable Farming course to visit one of Mcdonald’s Flagship Farms. The Environmental and Sustainable Farming course is provided in conjunction with Susliving to give students the relevant knowledge, skills and competence to farm in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner. Operating across all sectors of farming, these Flagship Farms are suppliers to McDonald’s and have been identified for their excellent practice in sustainability and high standards. As part of the Flagship Farms scheme, the farms encourage sharing of sustainable farming practices, and the students had a great experience visiting Dempsey Beef Farm.
