We're not here saying you're growing for Dunnes; you're growing for Drummond House because we have no knowledge. We've never had a garlic grower'. Marita insisted on designing the packaging, as she was keen for her customers to "get to know" the growers. Besides introducing the new varieties labelled according to their strength and flavour and a new type of product called garlic scapes the flower buds of the garlic plant to the Irish market, Drummond House has pioneered the idea of selling packets of loose cloves, which have proved a big hit, particularly with those who like garlic but wouldn't use a whole bulb.
But it seems Dunnes Stores customers can't get enough of them, and Marita says she is regularly swamped with emails asking when the product will be in season again. The top chefs who quickly became keen customers of Drummond House garlic also encouraged them to do trial runs of asparagus, as it turned out they had the right kind of sandy soil for these plants to thrive.
So with the help and support of top agronomist John Hogan at Teagasc, the farm has produced its first official crop of this seasonal vegetable delicacy. Right now, they are working on increasing their plot sizes for garlic, "because we have a garlic planter, we have a garlic harvester and we have a garlic cloves packer, so happy days", said Marita. As well as that, they are working on new products, including a variety of black garlic and a garlic scape pesto.

The couple of samples we've done have blown people away with the taste factor. The story of Drummond House has also interested other growers, several of whom have asked Marita for advice. The truth is that the couple's success has been hard-won, with lots of mistakes and lessons learnt, and while Marita clearly wouldn't have had it any other way, her advice is that it's not a quick turnaround.

Get to grips with the big bogeyman of farm succession. What compensation are farmers entitled to for disturbance during the construction of a motorway. Gardeners more of a priority for Government than farmers, claims Fairies feature greatly in the folklore details submitted. Fields have been identified with a lone whitethorn bush sometimes also known as a Fairy Bush or Tree. Many farmers still hold this belief and allow the bushes to stay despite the inconvenience caused to modern farming and machinery. To give a few examples:.
In Druminshin, near Drumconrath, there is a Fairy Fort. In Cloghmacoo, Nobber, the Fort Field had a bare ring, a local mother told her children not to go there or the fairies would take them. The banshee is mentioned in Kingsmountain Killallon. At Athgaine Great, near Cortown, on an old estate there is a Victorian cattle underpass.
Legend says that a young riding mistress received a fatal injury when her horse dragged her through the tunnel. Since then there is a ghost story about a white lady. It resembles a flickering lamp and is said to recede if approached, drawing travellers away from the safe paths.
In a jack-o'-lantern, typically the top is cut off a turnip, and the inside flesh then scooped out; an image, usually a scary face, is carved onto the outside surface, and the lid replaced. In more recent times the pumpkin is used as the flesh is easier to scoop out.
