Our Ethos

Our ethos is to be as sustainable as possible by using fresh produce from our walled garden and working closely with our gardeners to provide you with healthy seasonal produce. By doing so, reduce our carbon footprint, food waste, and provide natural food free from additive and chemical preservatives whilst supporting artisan producers from Waterford and the island of Ireland. During the summer months, we sell homegrown tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers and much more.
