Cuardach Farm Organics Mission statement:
produce high quality affordable organic food and artisan products

In keeping with our mission statement we have placed all of our prices below  mainstream retail organic. Some introductory prices are below even the local grocery store retail price.

All of our home grown animals/poultry/vegetables are pasture raised without the use of any hormones or added chemicals and no pesticides or chemical additives are used on our fields.

Cuardach farm is  a self proclaimed organic farm.

The farm is intentionally not “Certified Organic” due to the fact that the costs

of doing so would have to be passed on to customers and this is completely contrary to our mission statement in producing high quality affordable organic food. We do buy certified organic seed whenever possible (never treated or genetically engineered) and don’t use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.

The farm’s goal originally was to just breed Irish Sport horses and converting a portion of the property to organic farming was not even "on the radar".

However, with farmers in my family going back generations, the price of food in the grocery store going through the roof, and horses being money pits to feed, I set out to raise my own chickens and put in a garden to fill my freezer for the winter.

The first year there was very little mortality in the birds and the gardens grew enormous unbelievably tall tomato plants. However, the rich organic soil here had a great deal to do with the garden's explosive growth. The land here had not been farmed for more than 40 years and the previous owners had livestock so what used to be the fields and paddocks had rich organic matter and 40 year old compost.

After my first year's harvest I started having people inquiring about extra eggs and raising a few birds for them and things just grew from there. It also seemed sensible with my post secondary education in bio science, veterinary technology, farrier science, and background experience with large animal husbandry. I had more than enough "know how" to plunge head first into an organic farm. My family definitely sees the humor in that statement.

The farm still breeds Irish sport horses and has the occasional Irish Sport horse and non Irish Sport horses  available for sale. For the near future the main focus will be on expanding the organic vegetables, poultry, meat sheep, herb and spice blends, and marketing them from the farm.  

All soaps, bath and body products are adamantly 100% palm oil free. At no time will palm oil ever be used at Cuardach farm. This is a personal and environmentally conscious decision of mine that I stand behind 100%.


We will be operating  a small general farm store mostly for eggs and organic chicken pickup and adding a webstore to the website for items that are able to be shipped. 

I welcome you to the virtual portion of the farm and please do email with any inquiries, suggestions, questions, or requests on animals, veggies, and soap making you would like to see raised or hand crafted for you.
