Castleruddery Organic Farm
Organically certified since 1989, Hilda Crampton and Dominic Quinn run one of the longest established organic farms in Ireland and have been an inspiration for many others, especially in the Wicklow area where there are now many organic holdings.
They produce an exceptionally wide range of beautiful vegetables and herbs that are bursting with goodness and flavour, and also import carefully selected organic fruit and vegetables to provide all year supply.
As well as selling their produce through heir own shop and Naas farmers' market, they participate in organic and other horticultural events including Bord Bia's hugely popular show Bloom, held in the Phoenix Park on the June Bank Holiday weekend each year.
Farm Shop (Thu & Fri 9-6); also at Naas Farmers' Market (Sat 10-3).
