About Us

Kitchen & Garden

We cook and grow at home in Newcastle Co. Wicklow. We have a fully HSE certified production kitchen in a converted barn and a kitchen garden outside.

A poly tunnel, a handful of raised beds and a little baby orchard make up the garden. In summer we make great use of our homegrown tomatoes, potatoes, courgettes, cucumbers, herbs and soft fruits.

It is incredibly important to us to be conscious of the impact our day to day business has on our local environment and economy. We do our very best to buy Irish ingredients and products and source ingredients with the highest welfare and environmental standards.

A few ingredients we are proud to use as standard in our kitchen:

  • Organic chicken from Wexford
  • Free range pork from Tipperary
  • Irish beef and Lamb from Wexford
  • Irish rapeseed oil from Wicklow
  • Free range eggs from Wicklow

We also reduce, reuse, recycle and compost as much waste as we possibly can.
