PLOUGHING SPECIAL

This soup showcases our lovely array of Irish root vegetables.  It is a family favourite with good reason; we grow the potatoes, carrots and onions ourselves!  With every tasty mouthful, we appreciate all the hard work that was put into bringing the ingredients to harvest.  Filled with nutritious, delicious, wholesome, goodness, this soup deserves its place an an Irish standby favourite for any occasion.  Enjoy!
