Part 17: Irish Food and Drink Producers Worth Getting to Know

We don’t need to look far to see some of the wonderful products that are being created right under our noses!

From homemade goods to family-based produce, we create a vast variety of food and drink in the country that are worth celebrating.

Here are five more food and drink producers that caught my eye this week:

Ayle Farm

Based in Tipperary, Ayle Farm are producers of Handmade Artisan Chutneys, Relishes, Pickles, Cooking Sauces and Preserves. All the products are made in small batches on their farm by hand.

They grow a range of vegetables that they use in their products and source whatever they don’t have from other local suppliers.
