October update

The season is well and truly changing, we’re still refusing to put the heat on in the office but it won’t be long now. We’ve had a great harvest so far despite a late start to the season, apples were particularily good. (Speaking of apples, we’ll be stocking a broad selection of bare root fruit trees and bushes this winter, please keep an eye on our website.) There is still plenty of stuff to do in the garden to keep us out of trouble. It’s all about harvesting and storing the last of your produce, tidying the garden and getting ready for next year. We’ve had a very interesting few days attending the ‘Blue sky day’ in Kerry. This is an initative set up by Kerry business man Jerry Kennelly. The idea is to promote entrepreneurship as a career choice to second and third level students. Speakers included Denis O‘Brien, Sarah Newman and ....us! Mark Little of ‘Primetime’ conducted an interview with us about growing our business in these challenging times. It was great for us to rub shoulders with some of the heavy hitters of Ireland‘s business community and to realise the level of underground optimism for the future of our country. It’s a challenge, fair enough, but nothing we can’t overcome.

We have just got some help with our website internet marketing who we know have a keen interest in organic vegetable growing so hopefully our website can grow and be more successful.
