HOW IT WORKS

Visit our Shop

Our Farm Shop is open every Saturday from 10am-2pm. We have a wide selection of organic vegetables and herbs available, with some extras such as honey, organic eggs and organic sourdough breads from other high quality Irish producers. 

Monday Veg Box

 Order a box of 6 fresh vegetables for collection on Mondays , according to what we have available at the farm. Due to our climate we have a limited amount of our own produce available at this time of year (April-June) so we include some extras from other organic growers to keep variety in the boxes. 

You don’t have to subscribe, simply order your box as needed each week. You can sign up to receive a weekly text or email with the box contents, then you can decide if you’d like one that week. We usually have a list of produce available from which you can choose your six items.

Why should I start eating seasonally?

It is simple - eat foods that are grown at the same time as you eat them.

Why?

It’s healthier

When vegetables are out of season in your area, they're transported from the other side of the world. Being locked in shipping containers for weeks does nothing for their nutritional content, in many cases it’s detrimental.

It’s kinder to the planet

An apple from a farm up the road has a smaller carbon footprint than one from South Africa.

It tastes better

Out of season veg can be picked unripe or spoil a little on the way, leaving flavour compromised.

It supports your local community

The profits from unseasonal food are swallowed up by the transporter, retailer etc. By supporting local growers, you  feed the profits back into your own community.

It’s exciting!

You may be introduced to new foods and be excited to see what changes in the season will bring to your dinner table!
