Lough Boora Organic Farm
Lough Boora Organic Farm will have a stand out our event on the 19th June. Prepare to be blown away will all the lovely fresh and organic vegetable they have to offer. Dinner will never be the same again once you use their vegetables.
Tony Garahy, the fourth generation to farm Lough Boora, runs a mixed organic farm, with livestock (50 suckler cows, 100 ewes), tillage, and forestry which is certified by the Organic Trust Ltd. In 1997 Tony started an organic vegetable box scheme and now has 200 customers contributing €3000 per week to a total turnover for his vegetable business of €70000.
Lough Boora Farm always produced vegetables for home use. A box of mixed vegetables grown at Lough Boora is delivered door-to-door on designated days, direct to customers in the local area who have signed up to the scheme for the medium to long term.
The contents of the box are determined by Lough Boora. They pick what is ripe and available, rather than the customer saying ‘this is what we’d like’.
There is no pressure to produce out of season. Food is picked as it is required and travels less – therefore, it is fresher. It cuts out a middleman so that Lough Boora benefits and growing vegetables is sustainable.
