Cloughjordan Community Farm is a member-owned farm on the Tipperary Offaly border using biodynamic and organic farming methods, we aim to produce the highest quality, nutritionally dense vegetables, while also reducing the environmental impact of producing this food. Since we started in 2008, we’ve been supplying fresh produce daily to over 70 households in the area. The money gathered from members is used to pay our farmers a salary, to purchase seeds and equipment and to lease the land we farm. Everything that comes off the land then belongs to the members. Members also have free or low cost access to all of our training and educational events. Our primary goal is to provide the most nutritionally complete vegetables and fruit possible. Vegetables grown in healthy, nutrient rich soil taste amazing! ..this makes being a part of Cloughjordan Community Farm a unique experience, as members are directly connected to the source of your food. We know the people who grow our food and can explore the place it came from with weekly harvest reports, farm news and farm visits.
How does it Work?
Members pay a regular contribution to cover administration, running costs and wages of our growers. In return we all receive a regular supply of farm fresh vegetables in season, delivered twice a week to a central collection point. We also arrange regular farm walks, community meals and educational events. Check out our Facebook and Twitter feed to keep up to date with what’s happening.
