In 1988, Tom and Elizabeth Malone purchased two acres of land to provide employment for their teenage family. Following the advice and support of the local Teagasc office, they decided to grow strawberries on the two acres. In 1999 they started to produce our own jams and jellies. In 2005, they constructed a purpose built kitchen and now produce a wide variety of jams, jellies, marmalades, chutneys, fruit tonics and cordials.
The business has now grown to twelve acres and provides a wide variety of soft fruit and other products to the general public, retail, hotel and restaurant trade.
Frozen fruits are also available all year round for smoothies and desserts, jam making and jellies. These can be purchased from their Malone Farm Shop in Ballon, Co.Carlow. They also have a variety of hampers and gift ideas for special occasions. You can choose from pre-made hampers or simply make your own. Now you can visit Tom and Elizabeth and get a taste and tour of the family farm!
