Deirdre and Norman have been farming their land in Carney, Kildare organically since 1989. We’ve known them since 2008 when we first started to run the cafe in the co-op and have been meaning to go down to visit them pretty much since then. We finally managed the trip last week (always a pleasure to get out of the city on a really cold crisp sunny winter day).
We’ve set up weekly deliveries to the fumbally with whatever they have in season, this week we had the pleasure of some leeks, parsnips and some amazing cavolo nero. Hopefully some bok choi on the way next week and some sweet as hell beetroot.
