Part Eleven: Irish Food and Drink Producers Worth Getting to Know

Celebrating the best of what we grow, create and produce here in Ireland – this ongoing series looks at some of the many things we create here.

Here are five more producers that stood out for me this week:

Chilly Moo

This brand of frozen yoghurt was created by Clare and Joanna who came up with Chilly Moo out of a passion for eating well without sacrificing an ounce of enjoyment.

2169038

Gluten free, low GI (because of the natural fruit sugars) and less than 3% fat, these tasty yoghurts are currently available in three flavours, including Mixed Berry – YUM!

Elda Wild Irish Venison

Elda Wild Irish Venison was established by Jason Conway in 2012, a native of Waterford. All animals are sourced within a 60 mile radius of their unit and have a full traceability system from field to fork.

Not believing in waste, they try to use as much of the animals as possible, curing the animal hides, using the antlers as handles for walking and shooting sticks, and for the handles of hand made hunting knives. The antlers are also used to make buttons and toggles.

The fresh pasteurised milk is produced, processed and bottled in Galway, from the farms own mixed herd of Anglo Nubian and Sannen goats.

Bottled in 1 litre glass bottles, the milk is seasonal (March to November) because the goats need a break from their long summer  producing their milk and to produce kids!
