A traditional Wexford family farm in a picturesque country setting near JFK Arboretum, JFK Ancestral Home, Dunbrody Abbey, Tintern Abbey and The National Heritage Park in South East Ireland, Warren Farm gets its name from Patricia’s family, the Warrens, who have farmed at Warren Farm for many generations. The current farmhouse was built in the early 1800’s, with adjacent stone outbuildings for use as stables, corn storage and coach house.
Warrens have owned the farm since about 1860, although family ownership goes back further on the female line, with the name changing through marriage, as has happened again when Patricia’s surname changed from Warren to Knight.
In the past, the farm enterprises have been mixed and varied, according to the needs of the family and the wider community at any given time. Crops of barley, wheat, sugar beet and tobacco were grown, and there was grazing for beef cattle, cows and sheep. At the moment the farm enterprise is mainly tillage, with some grazing for cattle and sheep.
