Something smells leeky

20/05/2013 0 Comment(s) General News,

It has been a tricky start to the season, and we are a bit behind with our crops here on the farm. Luckily we have some great produce that is still tiding us over from last year. The fresh garlic in the boxes for the next few weeks is very good and you won't be able to get it anywhere else. See the leek harvest video at the end of the blog post.

cleaned and ready for the boxes

We were out harvesting leeks the other day and I thought it would be a good oppurtunity to show you where they are grown and how they are harvested. In typical Irish fashion we are dressed for all four seasons!

Have a look at the following video clip to see where the leeks in your box this week come from.
