Beechlawn Organic Farm
Una and Padraig’s Beechlawn Organic Farm is the Dynamic Organic Farm. This pair are restless, creative, driven and, above all, dynamic. You will find their superlative foods in the best restaurants and the best shops in Ireland – we had the good luck to have a late-autumn salad of their heirloom tomatoes in Dublin’s benchmark Chapter One Restaurant late in 2016, and the tastes and textures of the fruits simply blew us away: agriculture as elementalism, agriculture as organoleptics, agriculture as magic.
To the vital template of pure, clean, sustainable organic foods they bring a business focus which has meant that the farm has progressed every year since they produced their first crops in 2002. But, vitally, the development is all organically achieved, with each piece of the farm jigsaw fitting into place at the right time as they move onwards. The template for Dynamic Organic which Padraig and Una have achieved is one that could – and should – serve as a template for an Organic Ireland, an agricultural model that works with nature, works with time, and which provides us with the most beautiful, healthful organic fruits and vegetables to sustain our families. Just take one taste of the Beechlawn produce and you will understand a simple truth: eating is an agricultural act, and Beechlawn is a rock’n’roll example of Dynamic Organics.
