ABOUT NURNEY FARM
Nurney Farm has been growing a wide range of organic fruit and vegetables on some 40 acres since 1990. They are in the process of building a large glasshouse in a bid to secure an extended growing season for Irish fruit and vegetables. This will supplement their current harvest with new and exotic fare. Further to the fresh produce which is cultivated on the land is a supply of honey and organic eggs. All of their produce is sold in The Green Door Market each week.
Owned by Norman Kenny and Deirdre O’Sullivan, who are also co-owners of The Green Door Market, Nurney Farm has undergone several changes in its nearly 30 years of business. The old farmhouse has been completely refurbished. They have installed both a wind turbine and solar heating system. They have also added a reed-bed sewage treatment system amid the areas of forestry which provide heat to the main homestead.
Delighted to be able to open his farm to the Irish public, Mr. Kenny said: “This is the first picnic of its kind that we have hosted in County Kildare. We hope to have as many customers as possible in attendance as well as their families and friends. Having worked very hard over the years to have built such a beautiful environment which has provided so much bounty; I could now not be happier to share it with our supporters.”
Those who wish to attend the event can find the farm at Nurney House, CARBURY, Co.Kildare W91 FK11.They are one hour west of Dublin just off the N4. Visitors are advised to bring a picnic and to dress appropriately for an Irish farm.
