How to order on the website without continually getting sent back to the first page.
This won't affect the 'cart' and will speed up to process :)
Thurs 2nd April
We're almost up to speed again. A delivery arriving a day late this week has been the only problem but we appear to have got round it. Thanks as always for your patience!
Unfortunately we will have to increase our packing and delivery charge by a euro (including vat!!) to attempt to cover some of the added labour costs of extreme veg box packing and delivering. Its very time consuming as you'd imagine. I should be charging a lot more.
Recent price rises. The price of produce has started to climb a bit. I hope it's not a sign of things to come. I'll keep doing my best to find the best value where I can without compromising quality.
We're still not taking on any new customers, but we're starting to add a few that were on the waiting list. Please email me first if you haven't ordered before to see if we have a space to fit you in, thank
Refunds (and phonecalls!!!) are taking up quite a lot of time , please be respectful, we're up to our eyes here and every minute counts. Communicate by email or text if need be, they're all read and noted if not answered
Some produce might be unavailable, we'll do our best to swap it for something someway comparible of equal value. I'll also be compiling a refund book to manage refunds digitally for your safety.
Wednesdays pallet delivery to us from Holland will be arriving a day late. Friday, Rathgar and surrounds will most likely be a Saturday delivery this week
Wednesday 25th March
PLEASE NOTE; WE ARE NOT TAKING ON ANY MORE NEW CUSTOMERS AT THE MOMENT WE ARE FULL TO CAPACITY WITH ORDERS AND CANNOT PHYSICALLY PACK OR DELIVER ANY MORE AT THIS TIME.
EXISTING CUSTOMERS PLEASE CONTINUE TO ORDER, STOCKS ARE STILL GOOD.
WE ARE REORGANISING DAILY TO IMPROVE OUTPUT SO WATCH THIS SPACE!
ANYONE THAT PUTS AN ORDER IN THAT IS NOT ALREADY ON OUR SYSTEM WILL BE REFUNDED IN FULL AND PUT ON A WAITING LIST. THIS SHOULD ONLY BE A TEMPORARY MEASURE, SORRY!

We'll also be doing home deliveries around the Stonybatter area to our customers that are self isolating. Deadline for orders is Thursday evening.
We don't have the capacity to deliver to any more area's on that side of town at the moment. Sorry!
As usual, please let me know if we've missed anything out when packing or if any produce isn't up to standard. Our workload has trebled overnight and mistakes can be made. Email me if possible.
Wednesday 18th March
As from next week we'll be adding Tuesday deliveries to deal with the demand for good organic food. Feel free to order over the weekend, we'll get to you as soon as we can.
Tuesday 17th March
Veg Box deliveries will be spaced out between Thursday and Saturday for the meantime to cope with a much larger demand than usual.
We will have two Saturday drop off points, Manor St, Stonybatter as close to Penders Yard as I can get parked(10 am-11am) and also The Pavillion, Aughrim (10am-11am) Please leave a note on your order if you can pick up at either of these points.
For those self isolating we will drop to your front door where we will ring your doorbell or knock once then scarper!
If everyone can order and pay on our website it would be really appreciated until this passes.
Some produce may not be available but we will have fresh deliveries coming in regularly so just keep checking for availability, I'll update the website daily as things change.
Thanks for your cooperation in this, as usual we'll be doing our very best to keep you fed.
(Sunday 15th March)
With the imminent 'lockdown' seemingly on its way and the obvious need to be socially responsible and not encourage public gatherings at this time, we have temporarily pulled out of all our markets until this crisis has passed. Veg box deliveries will continue as normal and new routes and delivery days and drop off points will be added to accomodate all our market customers.
More to follow.....
Our salad leaf and rocket will be coming from Udo over at Ballyroan farm while we repair our tunnels after the winter. It's been a wet and windy winter!
On a brighter note, a neighbour gifted us a lovely big tunnel that we're now in the process of dismantling and getting it up and running down here. Thanks Dominic!
Veg Box deliveries are all packed on Wednesday and delivered on Thursday. Please have your orders in by 3.30 on Wednesday at the very latest, thanks!
Our Weekly Markets are cancelled until further notice. We'll resume as soon as possible.

I'll be using Biobag and/or a shinier compostable bag for my leaf packing as of this week (11/3/19), I'm still exploring other options as well but that's the end of the plastic :) Don't forget to return your empty boxes or crates. They get reused too!
We've still plenty of Wicklow veg, Spuds, leeks, beetroot, small suedes, kale and red cabbage from Ollys farm and Salad leaf, rocket, a limited amount of spinach and parsley from Udo at Ballyroan Farm. Much more to come as well!
