We grow a large range of fruit and vegetables in our fields at Helen's Bay and combine these with produce from other organic farms in Northern Ireland and certified imports when necessary to provide a complete range of seasonal vegetables delivered to your door. Organic principles are the foundation upon which we work. While there will always be need to import some produce we believe it is important to retain and develop the skills necessary for an indigenous organic agriculture in Northern Ireland that is sustainable and capable of delivering quality food.
What we offer
We supply three sizes of mixed vegetable packs combining roots and greens together with a mixed fruit pack, eggs and bread as optional extras.
