Food Hero Story
Food makers and sisters and the owners of NutShed.
It’s no accident that they're here, feeding Ireland, sustaining people up and down the country with the best plant-based foods that they can think of. It’s because their lives have always been a recipe for really delicious things. Armfuls of gorgeous ingredients all around them, lugs of inspiration and experience from a childhood immersed in the world of food, looooads of hard work and a serious drizzle of passion.
Their parents came from farming families, where food was sourced, grown, cooked, cherished and chomped with gusto. As toddlers they hung securely on their mom’s hip as she stirred pots for thousands of jams and chutneys harvested from the hedgerows of Tipperary. Their dad can talk for Ireland and for over 37 years he’s been doing so behind the counter of Country Choice in Nenagh, selling edible gorgeousness. They grew up knowing their foods by the seasons and the names of the people that produced them.
They took their early food fantasy flights round the family shop and they first went duo together on the festival circuit. They were packing vans and trailers and heading off with their teams to make sure you got some good food into your faces come the party times. Now, they make really great plant based treats, raw balls and peanut butters in their NutShed HQ in TipperaryShare (hCard)
