We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.
Hello! We are Paola and Andrew and we grow certified organic vegetables at Carrowgarry farm in Beltra, Co. Sligo, right beside the Atlantic Ocean.
Carrowgarry farm has been in Andrew’s family for generations and we’re honoured to work and live here. Vegetables are grown in two large polytunnels and an outdoor area of a third of an acre, located in a beautiful walled-garden surrounded by apple trees.
We strongly believe in locally-grown, nutrient-dense, seasonal food. It tastes better, is more nutritious, fresh and environmentally friendly.
One of the main lessons learnt from past years is the importance of building a healthy soil and this has become our main priority. Healthy soil will both increase the quality and the capacity of crops to be resilient to climate stress, pests and disease.
Seasonality is also key to our ethos and we would like to see more and more people eating what is available in each season. You won’t taste better tomatoes than ours in the summer!
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.
