Green Earth Organics

Green Earth Organics have been producing & delivering quality fresh fruit & vegetables for over 10 yearsgreenearthfarm1

We (Jenny & Kenneth Keavey) started Green Earth Organics box delivery scheme in 2006.The farm is situated 8 miles from Galway City. Originally the land was my grand-father's and then my father's and finally I took over the farm 7 years ago.

I put the farm into conversion for organic status in 2004. Currently we are farming on 25 acres of organically certified land. Another 10 acres is split between, a wild life biodiversity area, native woodland forestry (3000 trees) and red clover/grassland. There are also 3 ducks, 2 dogs and 2 donkeys!

Currently there are 10 full time employees and 7 part-time employees and we have a packing facility in Dublin and Galway.

We also take on students and interns and employ seasonal workers at certain times of the year. We have 6 polytunnels and grow a wide range of crops both indoors and in the field. Over the course of a year a typical seasonal box will contain 80% local organic produce.

We buy produce from other Irish suppliers, and we also import organically certified veg and fruit in order to be able to offer a full selection of produce year round. At Green Earth Organics we care deeply about the environment, and believe that people should be able to choose foods that are grown as nature intended, taste fantastic, and add to their wellbeing.

We aim to have sustainability and health and the centre of all business decisions we take. We are certified organic by IOFGA.

Went out to your shop last wednesday for the first time and was not disappointed. The new season potatoes are absolutely delicious. I will not be going anywhere else. Even My 8 year old son noticed the difference he loved the apples in his lunch box and the oranges were sooo juicy he told me. Delighted to have just ordered my fruit and veg box to be delivered. The prices are so much better than buying my fruit and veg in dunnes as i was doing and There is just no comparison with the taste. green earth organics is much much tastier. ........Roisin

Just wanted to say that I was delighted with my large veg box that was delivered the week before last. It was lovely to come home and find it waiting for me on the porch... It's just so great to have fresh veg and fruit in the house without having the hassle of grocery shopping. It's just there waiting for you when you come home! Plus, I like to support local businesses. And I like the way you are easy on the earth with an organic farm. I'm sure the ducks are well fed eating all the slugs, which in turn keeps the produce in tact. ............Amy
