Vegetable Boxes Delivered To Your Door

Brendan is bringing his veg to a wider audience with his Vegetable Boxes. These wonderful boxes contain delicious homegrown In Season Farm vegetables along with produce from 2 fellow local growers. All the veg produced is seasonal Irish veg, thus the contents of the box change on a weekly basis depending on availability. You can also choose from some micro veg that Brendan is famous for, these include baby carrots and baby beetroots and turnips. Rooster golden wonders and kerr pink potatoes are also available. Brendan sells his boxes in a number of local veg shops in his locality, but if you're located elsewhere in Ireland these can be couriered right to your door. The large box is priced at €20.00 with a smaller box also available at a cost of €10.00.

Our Review of In Season Farm

Chefs in the country’s Capital are raving about micro vegetables! It’s the new thing and we’ve found the man that made it happen! Brendan Guinan brings the big boys of the cooking world a real treat of tastes in teeny weeny form! His homegrown seasonal veggies, in baby sizes, adorn the most prestigious of plates, don’t you know?!  

Brendan has latched onto a very smart niche market – but that idea comes with the weight of many years of horticultural experience. Brendan  is a graduate of Warrenstown Horticultural College Co. Meath, with a Diploma in Commercial Horticulture under his belt. Working experience followed, with a potato grower, then in baby leaves, salads, and eventually,  micro salads.  He’s expanded that to micro vegetables too. These little miniatures captured Brendan’s imagination,  and that of the top chefs of the country.    

In peak growing season, you’re  likely to find boxes of fresh picked baby vegetables ready to be delivered to one or other of Dublin's  top chefs. Tiny radishes, parsnips, carrots, beetroots, budding pak choi and little shallots plus punnets of pea shoots, cress, mizuna, red radish leaves, green broccoli leaves, sorrel, coriander and rocket leaves ready for delivery. These are in the earliest stages of growth, young and tender, and totally adored by those who have ever eaten them. You’ve tasted nothing till you’ve tasted these micro wonders! 

Brendan's wife Margaret has taken his carefully grown produce one step further, to create her own range of pickles and chutneys. The In Season Farm label includes Tomato Relish, Pickled Baby Beetroots, Golden Beetroot Relish which goes perfectly with Irish Goat's Cheese, gorgeous little Paris Market Carrots, pickled whole and Pickled Baby Red Onions. Semi Sundried Tomatoes come on stream in summer when Brendan's tunnels are in full production. Margaret uses nothing but natural ingredients in her pickles and chutneys, creating them in small batches by hand in her production kitchen in Drogheda town. There are no huge vats of bubbling chutney, nor big automated bottling line here. It's just Margaret's elbow grease for chopping, cooking, hand stirring and bottling Brendan's freshly harvested vegetables, that makes this range unique and exciting.

    Tom Durcan, craft butcher of over twenty five years experience, is a master of spiced beef. It has won him many honours. This fine Cork speciality is the underlining product at his butcher’s stall in the English market. Tom’s career began as a youngster, when he took a summer job in a butcher’s shop during school holidays. The experience proved invaluable. Working with an experienced butcher with his own slaughter house provided what Tom describes as a ‘fantastic education’ for the young novice in how to source animals, and the ground rules for good butchery.
