Glencree Grapes in Waterfall Farm Shop!!

In the Shop over the summer we have had a lot of locally grown fruit and vegetables. I mean really local, as in ‘spitting distance’! Of course we had the very popular raspberries from Alan Conroy’s farm just down the road. You may have read about my Jam Making Adventures! At the moment we have beautiful tomatoes, courgettes, runner beans and herbs from a little bit further down the road in Kilcoole. Our very our garden lettuce, picked fresh every morning made an appearance during the summer. But, wait for it…. at the height of the summer we had peaches! Yes, peaches! Grown by our neighbours just beside the farm, in their glass house. They had a short season but were very popular while they lasted. And now we have ………(drum roll please)….. ta ta ta dah!!!!!!!! Grapes! From Glencree! These are also proving popular with people buying bunches not just to eat, but also to juice and make into jelly and perhaps wine!! This pic is of the lovely juicy grapes ripening up for their Shop debut! 

I love having the locally grown produce in the Shop, as the song lyrics go “It gives me an enormous feeling of well-being and I’m ‘appy for the rest of the day!“.
