Southeast Ireland has a great history and growing conditions for soft fruits like strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, rhubarb, and many others. The reputation of Wexford strawberries is well-earned. For our fruity yogurts, we have a number of growing partners in Wexford, as close as just 3 miles from our farm…
- Jeffares (Blackcurrants)
- Keoghs (Rhubarb)
- Eamonn Creane (Raspberries, strawberries, & blackcurrants)
We can’t get all the fruits we need from our local fruit-growing partners all of the time. Sometimes we deal with other Irish growers like Milowens in County Carlow, and sometimes we have to import the fruit from other countries (for example to make lemon curd yogurt), but our focus is on working more and more with local growers. Doing this means less mileage for fruit to travel before it is put in the yogurt, and it also means that we can closely work with the growers to get the best quality.
