We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.
We run a 4 acre organic, regenerative farm based in Kilcoole, Co Wicklow just 10 mins south of Greystones, focused on minimum till or no dig practices where we not only adhere to the current organic growing standards but also focus on improving the soil microbe health and increasing the biodiversity around the farm through planting a mix of different pollinator species.
We produce up to 40 different crops across the full year and we provide these through a number of different channels. Our central focus is on our CSA veg box scheme which is a Community Supported Agriculture scheme where members subscribe for an agreed number of weeks to receive a weekly box of the freshest local and in season veg and can collect it from a number of different collection points in the local area.
We pay our suppliers at least 50% of the retail value for any products we buy in, and when dealing with wholesalers, we check to make sure they pay fair prices to their growers.
Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
