Welcome to Dolan’s Social Farm

Dr. Miriam and Malachy Dolan- along with our three children Ben, Saoirse, and James- operate a suckler herd with a small flock of sheep, two outrageous pigs all on 60ha in South-West Fermanagh. The farm is in one unit and the farmhouse is adjacent to the farmyard.

On our farm, you can help in farming activities and become part of this family-run business. This could be something that may interest and benefit you.

Our Vision

“To have a society where all can live an inclusive life in their local community, where people are valued, respected & supported.”

Social Farming & Care farming are the practices of offering family farms and farming as a form of social service. The farm is not a specialized treatment farm; rather the farm remains a typical working farm where people in need of support can benefit from participation in the farm’s activities in a non-clinical environment. It can also reconnect farmers with their local communities through the opening up of their farms as part of the social support system of the community.”

Our Mission

“To work in partnership with people and families (who avail of supports), specialist services, industry, community, and voluntary bodies, in enabling valid progression directed by their interests, talents, and choices of the individual.”
