Meet the Producers:
Mary and Tony Walsh produce high quality, free range geese for the Christmas season. Authentic food has always been a passion of ours and that’s what turned our hobby into a family business more than 15 years ago. We pride ourselves on the quality of our produce, the loyalty we have for our customers, and they have for us.

Bosco’s Garden is a small regenerative farm and market garden established in 2020 just outside Kilkenny City. We grow our produce using beyond organic, no-dig permaculture techniques, working with nature to create a balanced farm ecology. We supply local restaurants and run a busy farm shop on Fridays, right beside the garden where all the food is grown. To follow our journey you can join us on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook where we give detailed insight on our growing methods.
Highbank Orchards is home to the original and innovative and multi award winning Highbank Orchard Syrup. We also produce several delicious Apple juices, including our acclaimed non alcoholic Drivers Cider as well as Highbank Proper Cider and Medieval Cider, matured on their wild yeasts with no added sulphites. Highbank Organic Farm in Co. Kilkenny was a 17th century farmyard and the present farm house was built by our family in the 19th Century. The first apple orchards were planted by the family, in 1969, to compliment the hop gardens. The fertile Kilkenny limestone soils are uniquely suited to produce delicious apples and apple juice organically. The varieties of apples are specially chosen for their juicing properties which are uniquely complex and full of health giving vitamins and mineral. Find out more here.
Head to the Savour Main Stage on Saturday to meet these great producers and keep an eye out for them on the market and in local stores near you!
