This is a working farm in East Clare, with a shop, seasonal cafe and twenty acres of beautiful
woodlands, organic gardens and orchards that are open to the public.
The Irish Seed Savers Association is a non-profit charity, set up in 1991 to save Ireland’s
heritage and heirloom vegetable seeds, potatoes, grains and fruit trees from extinction.
The Association has over 800 varieties of organic, open pollinated heritage seeds in its purpose-built Seed
Bank. The extensive heritage gardens contain a native Irish apple tree collection together
with the country’s only self-rooting orchard. Each year, the Association shares its skills and knowledge with
thousands of children and adults through courses, camps and outreach programmes.
The Irish Seed Savers Association is one of very few organisations in Ireland engaged in this urgent work.
