The Story of the Producer
Grantstown Nurseries is based at Callaghane just off the road to Dunmore East, 3 miles from our store. It is a family business with a tradition of innovation and the highest horticultural practices. The Currid Family has supplied Ardkeen Quality Food Store with a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables for several decades. The main crop at Grantstown Nurseries is tomatoes. Tomatoes destined for Ardkeen are picked ripe and delivered the same day. Varieties grown include Cheetah, a traditional round tomato, as well as the finest plum and cherry varieties which are picked and brought to the consumer on the vine. Also grown at Grantstown are a fine range of lettuces from the traditional favourite butterhead but also Lolo Rossa, Lolo Bionda and Oakleaf. Much of the fruit and vegetables consumed in Ireland are imported. By stocking locally grown produce, which has not been stored and transported from afar, we can guarantee the superior freshness and quality, as well as the ultimate in traceability.
