We have four polytunnels at Drumanilra and a small out-door growing area. Our Head Organic Gardener, Julia Lehman grows organic, mixed salad leaves all year round for our salad bags and burgers in the Drumanilra Farm Kitchen. She supplies the Kitchen with seasonal tomatoes, fresh herbs, beans, pumpkins, courgettes, cucumbers, potatoes and much more, to be used in our soups and salads.
Our vegetable garden is organic and Julia controls pests and encourages fertility with companion planting, green manures and animal manure from the farm. Her garden is full of brightly coloured edible and decorative flowers to attract bees for pollination and flying pest predators like the hoverfly which love to munch on aphids.
