We have four polytunnels at Drumanilra and a small out-door growing area. Our garden team grows organic, mixed salad leaves all year round for our Drumanilra Farm Kitchens. They supply the Kitchens 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 we control pests and encourage fertility with companion planting, green manures and animal manure from the farm. The 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.
