Drummond House Farm
Food Hero Story
Drummond House located is a lush 100-acre farm owned by owned by Peter and Marita Collier, has been in the Collier family for over 100 years. Originally a mix of dairy, tillage and beef, but in 2012 with the uncertain farming climate, the Colliers decided to look at different ways of farming.
With the realisation that all the garlic in Ireland was at the time and still is imported and after extensive research and travels across Europe, the first garlic seeds are planted in late October and cared for throughout the winter of 2013 and nine months later, the first crop of Drummond House Garlic was harvested.
Drummond House has now grown into the largest producer of garlic in Ireland now supplying us with elephant garlic, smoked garlic, as well as garlic scapes.
It turns out the sandy soil of Drummond House is ideally suited to asparagus growing too. Asparagus takes three or four years to become fully established, so it's a crop that requires patience on the part of the grower and in 2019 we had our first crop of Irish grown asparagus delivered to us from the Colliers.Share (hCard) , ,
