Jackdaw Farm Salad Box

Regular price €10.00 €0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

Jackdaw Farm was founded by Kat & Danny O’Hanlon in 2018. It is a 2 acre, no-spray, no-dig, honest, amazing, radical, fantastic, market garden located in Drumone, Co. Meath

Small Box

A selection of seasonal salad greens (see below) - usually 3 to 5 items. Would suit one salad loving individual or a couple for your weeks salad needs.

Large Box

Suitable for a small family and containing 3 to 5 seasonal greens. Sometimes when an expensive crop like tomato or hazelnut is included the amount of greens will drop slightly.

No Dig

No-dig is a way of growing without disturbing the soil structure with digging implements. Basically, you grow into a layer of compost put on top of the soil. It’s great for the plants, the health of the soil and all the creepy-crawlies too.

No Spray

No-spray means we use no chemicals to grow our produce. Just sun, water, compost, blood, sweat and tears. And sometimes loud operatic singing. Of many musical numbers. Many varied musical numbers. Okay, so it’s mostly just variations of “I Feel Pretty” and “Bye-Bye Birdie.” Point is: no chemicals.

Organic?

Originally, we decided not to pursue certification because of the fee and hoped to apply at some point in the future. Now, we have decided never to pursue organic certification on principle. This may sound very *eye-roll* #Millennial, but it is our hope that people will put more faith in the words of their small producers than those of the certification boards. Everyone should take a more active role in getting to know their growers, since blind faith is never good, even when it comes to organics.
