The Apple Farm
Con Traas grows the best apples.
Sweet; crunchy; alive; vivid; satisfying, they are nature’s orbs, presentations of the living earth, presentations of the goodness of nature, presentations of the fact that the region where Mr Traas’s Apple Farm is located is the perfect place in which to grow the perfect apple.
Growing the perfect apple – an apple that is organoleptically satisfying; an apple that is true to its nature as a blessing of nature – is no simple thing, and to be able to focus on growing the perfect fruit, year after year, despite the vagaries of the climate, is no small thing.
Great artists do one thing well, as well as it can be done. Mr Traas does other things, of course – he grows other superb fruits such as plums and strawberries and whatnot, and makes superb juices, cordials and vinegars. But it is the triumph of his apple growing – that one thing – that places The Apple Farm at the pinnacle of Irish agriculture.
