Our Farm Manager Conor O'Malley can be seen early in the mornings heading off to begin another day's planting of our carrots and potatoes for harvesting in July and September. It's a busy time of the year for him and the team of growers, especially given the increasingly unpredictable weather of late. While some of our fields are a short journey for him located as they are here at the farm and food production facility, others require a bit of a journey around Meath and Louth. Below are some pictures taken in the first round of planting in Termonfeckin, Clogherhead, Togher and here at the Meade Farm.
We are trying some new sustainability initiatives on our farm this year such as using more organic pesticides and fertilisers. Conor has trialled these already and found them to be both sustainable and effective. As part of the Origin Green programme, we are committed to seeking to manage our resources efficiently with a view to preserving the environment for future generations.
