My dad started our business in Kinsealy, North county Dublin in the 1960’s, growing mostly tomatoes. In 1979, I joined and began growing lettuce. Since then we have been supplying both the catering trade and supermarkets.

In the mid ’80’s we started producing continental salads such Lollo Rossa, Oakleaf, Frisee and Endvine. This is a specialist market, in which we are one of a few growers in this country.

Now the family tradition is being carried on by my son Stephen, who has also joined the company.
