We are trying to make our fresh produce as affordable as possible for our customers. As such we are offering a couple of options this year to give extra value. The choices to buy this year are:
1. Drop-in – for customers who like to see the quality and pick their own items from our market display.
2. Preorder – with this system you can order individual items from the available produce list for the week. This will be ready for you to collect on Friday afternoon, up to 7pm.
3. Mixed box – For customers who would like extra value and use a broad range of vegetables we can make up a selection from the produce available and will include 15% extra produce FREE. This can be to the value of 15, 20 or 25 euro. It will always have a mix of greens, root veg, herbs and whatever is ready to harvest.
If you would be interested in joining a CSA scheme (community supported agriculture) please contact us to discuss. If we have enough interest we are considering introducing a pilot scheme.
Our farm shop is now open for summer. Opening times – every Friday 12pm-5pm. See the list posted under ‘this week’s produce’ for a week by week update (updated every Thurs). Drop-in customers are welcome. For preorders please send a list to Elaine via the website, or to firstname.lastname@example.org/087 6187908. Orders need to be sent on Thursday night for Friday preparation please.
We have a new patio area overlooking Lough Derg and our vegetable garden for anyone with time to sit and enjoy the view.
Local food is an essential element of any community’s independence, economic success and health of its members by having access to food at peak freshness. Health problems such as obesity, diabetes and cancer all have direct links to food quality.
It is my firm belief that small food producers who care about the food that they are growing, rearing or making are the businesses who can offer the best quality, nutritional and ultimately food value to their customers.
At Good & Green our business may be small, but the idea behind it, of supplying chemical free food from a number of growers and food producers has important effects. Our customers can access excellent quality food, whilst several small food industries are supported. In addition, our environmental impact aims to be positive, with minimum transporting of food, and produce grown with only organically approved methods.
Local food really is the way to go – look for it!
John has been developing a range of natural edged cutting boards from hardwoods such as apple, pear, elm, spalted beech. They come in a range of sizes from cheese boards to large kitchen boards of approx 60 x 40cm.
The style and finish are natural and aim to retain the character and features of the wood. Most are approx 20 – 30mm thick and are very practical for use in the kitchen. Contact John on 087 2273299 for enquiries.
