Community Supported Agriculture

After our first year, we have become the first CSA in Ireland to successfully grow and process our own porridge oats in conjunction with Derry Desmond at his farm in Ringrone. We have also teamed up with Colm O’Regan who is supplying a monthly sack of potatoes, delivered locally. We have experimented with a crop of quinoa, a grain-like plant from South America which grows well in Irish climate. It has a high protein content, a good balance of essential amino acids, is gluten free and is a high source of dietary fibre. Sounds like a wonder food!

Over the years the CSA has bought vegetables, eggs, chickens and honey directly from the farmer.
