Tykillen Farm is a small family-run farm on the bank of the River Slaney in County Wexford.
We farm lambs, bees, horses and trees.
Our online shop has beeswax produce.
Our 2020 honey harvest and hampers are now sold out - thanks so much for the amazing support in our first year, we really appreciate it.
Sign up for beemails on our website and we’ll let you know when our 2021 harvest is ready.
Our pure raw Wexford honey is sourced exclusively from hives located on our farm.
Our handmade beeswax products include soaps, salves and lipbalms. All these products are handmade by Ciara in small batches using only natural ingredients and fragrances. Our products and packaging are palm-oil, petroleum, and plastic free.
Our pure raw Wexford honey is sourced exclusively from hives located on our farm. With hints of clover, blackberry and gorse it is beautifully sweet yet light in flavour.
Our honey is cold filtered but otherwise is not processed in any way. This preserves the naturally occurring vitamins, enzymes, prebiotics and and antioxidants in our honey, maximising the health benefits of our honey.
As our honey has not been pasteurised crystallisation may occur. This is a sign of quality and can be reversed by applying some heat if desired
Our handmade beeswax products include soaps, salves and lip balms. These are all handmade by Ciara in small batches using only natural ingredients and fragrances.

We are a family farm, with three generations of us currently living and working on the farm.

We work with nature as much as possible on our farm. This includes:
Planting a forest in 2006 (13 acres of Ash, Oak, Beech, Scots Pine and Sycamore); limited fertiliser use and recently planting multi-species grass swards to further reduce our use of fertilisers; large areas of farm in permanent pasture; planting 1 hectare with wild flowers and corn to support birds and insects; planting a wildflower meadow; bird and bat boxes sited around the farm.
Established hedgerows form most of perimeters around our farm and between our fields.
We are members of Origin Green and the Bord Bia Sustainable Lamb Production Scheme and are participants in the GLAS (Green Low Carbon Agri-Environment) Scheme.
