To produce organic crops using biodynamic and organic farming methods and to accelerate the transition to a locally based economic model of agriculture and food distribution.
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. 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. Cloughjordan Community Farm have been awarded a Leader Grant from NTLP to develop and improve access to a site to be used for outdoor education and learning festivals with basic facilities for camping. The grant also allows the Community Farm to construct a number of temporary elements to enhance our capacity to host such events including covered seating, mobile solar collectors and LED lighting as well as recycling and composting facilities.
