Since its establishment in 1983 as one of Ireland’s first organic farms, Ballybrado became a centre point for a movement that was critical of the unsustainable way in which food was being produced, its effect on our environment and our health.
Today the team sustainability has become an important parameter for think tanks around the world who asses the long-term effects of human activity: how we treat our global resources, how we deal with climate change and even how we develop sustainable market economies.
After decades of organic farming at Ballybrado the place has become a haven for wildlife and a splendid example for living and working in harmony with nature, in line with the philosophy “Think global, act local”.

the story of the producer
“Our objective at Ballybrado is to spread the joy of food and living in harmony with nature, and taking a responsible role in society by producing wholesome and tasty food in a sustainable manner”. Their mission statement speaks volumes for not only the quality of Ballybrado’s produce but also the people behind Ballybrado – The Finke Family, a name synonymous with the growth of the organic movement in Ireland. Josef and Marianne Finke set up their organic farm near Cahir, in 1983 producing wholesome organic flours and porridge oats and creating an organic awareness in Ireland, for both grain farmers and also organic beef and lamb producers through Good Herdsmen Ltd. This is a true family of Food Heroes!
