We grew white and red onions in this field which was 4 km from Clonakilty Co Cork. We picked specific varieties that suited our temperate climate in West Cork and would give enhanced taste and flavour. Our onions were planted on the 31/03/20, please find below a youtube link to how we plant our onions.
Onions are loaded with numerous health benefits, and scientists are still discovering how beneficial this vegetable really is. They’re a very good source of vitamin C and B6, iron, folate, and potassium.

Onions are members of the Allium family and a popular crop for those of us who grow our own food. There are three main groups of onions: salad or spring onions, which are sown in the autumn or spring, the autumn sown varieties for early bulbs, and the early sown kinds for late keeping.
Hi and welcome to our first news update on our new website. We will be regularly updating this post with general market information and how the crops are progressing through out the growing season.
