Our Story

We (Jenny & Kenneth Keavey) started Green Earth Organics box delivery scheme in 2006. Our organic farm is situated 8 miles from Galway City. Originally the land was my grand-father’s and then my father’s and finally I took over the farm 10 years ago. Currently we are farming on 25 acres of organically certified land. Another 10 acres is split between, a wild life biodiversity area, native woodland forestry (3000 trees) and red clover/grassland. We believe that producing food with respect for nature and the multitude of creatures we share this planet with is the only way to form. We believe that the protection of our fragile environment is the highest priority we have. We believe we can do this by providing an alternative to the mainstream, by growing and providing healthy sustainable food, by conducting our business in an ethical and sustainable way, with respect for all at its beating heart. We aim to change the way people view and consume their food and through increasing awareness change the impact our food has on the environment for the better. Organic produce tastes better, is better for you and your family, helps protect the environment locally and globally and is excellent value for money.

How we Farm

We believe that producing food with respect for nature and the multitude of creatures we share this planet with is the only way to form. We believe that the protection of our fragile environment is the highest priority we have. We believe we can do this by providing an alternative to the mainstream, by growing and providing healthy sustainable food, by conducting our business in an ethical and sustainable way, with respect for all at its beating heart. We aim to change the way people view and consume their food and through increasing awareness change the impact our food has on the environment for the better. We use crop rotation, we rest the land, plant green manures and follow all the best practice guidelines of organic agriculture. We have biodiversity areas on our farm, hedges, forests with native trees and we even have an area for some bee hives! We’ve a rainwater harvesting system which we use to water the produce in our tunnels and our packing facility is powered by solar energy.

Our Goods

Our aim at Green Earth Organics is to minimize the impact of our farm on the environment. We do this by growing our produce in an organic and sustainable way, by generating our own electricity using solar panels, and by harvesting the West of Ireland rainwater to wash the freshly picked veg and to water the plants in our tunnels. As a business, we are striving to be carbon neutral and we’re actively looking for ways to reduce and eliminate the plastic packaging in our boxes. Most of our fresh produce is packed either loose or in brown paper bags which we take back and re-use every week. All of our set fruit and veg boxes are guaranteed free from plastic packaging and we also have a special “Zero Plastic” section on our website for grocery items. We buy produce from other Irish suppliers, and we also import organically certified veg and fruit in order to be able to offer a full selection of produce year round. At Green Earth Organics we care deeply about the environment, and believe that people should be able to choose foods that are grown as nature intended, taste fantastic, and add to their wellbeing.

This farm is totally brilliant!! The food is delicious and it’s really interesting to follow them on Facebook too because Kenneth is so well-informed about ecosystems and sustainable farming. Five stars all the way!
