In 1988, we purchased two acres of land to provide employment for our teenage family. Following the advice and support of the local Teagasc office,we decided to grow strawberries on the two acres.
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 our Malone Farm Shop in Ballon, Co.Carlow. In 1999 we started to produce our own jams and jellies. In 2005, we constructed a purpose built kitchen and now produce a wide variety of jams, jellies, marmalades, chutneys, fruit tonics and cordials . We also have a variety of hampers and gift ideas for special occasions. You can choose from our pre-made hampers or simply make your own.
