Kenneth and Jenny Keavey’s family farm is situated just 10 miles from Galway city near the village of Corrandulla, Postcode H91 F9C5. They converted the farm to an organic vegetable farm in 2004 and have been growing vegetables and delivering organic produce nationwide for over 17 years. They farm 20 acres and have 2.5 acres aside for an area of wildlife biodiversity, native trees and red clover/grassland. They have planted over 7000 trees on their land and now that they have run out of space they donate a percentage of all purchases to native tree planting charities. They are certified by the IOA (Irish Organic Association) and absolutely everything they sell is organic!
Over the last 2 years their popular farm shop on site had been closed to the public while they focused on safe home deliveries, but this weekend on Saturday the 4th of June they are excited to announce that they are re-opening! The farm shop will be open to the public on Saturdays between 10am and 5pm. For this weekend’s grand re-opening there will also be some fun events! A free farm tour from Kenneth that will focus on growing and sustainability will start at 12pm-2pm, where Kenneth will guide you on how to grow sustainable food, you will see the polytunnels, machinery demonstrations, forestry, wild flowers, crops and may even get a chance to feed their pet pigs!
