Coolanowle Organics is a small family run business in County Laois, run from the same location as Coolanowle House - a country house & bed and breakfast with a strong emphasis on fine organic food. Having converted the farm to organic in 2001 we started selling organic meats produced from our own farm at farmers’ markets around Ireland in 2004. The owner, Jimmy Mulhall, and his son Eddie run the business with some part-time help. A custom built vehicle was purchased in late 2004. This vehicle enabled us to go to more markets and do more processing work and produce a wider range of products. A second meat trailer was purchased in 2008 and this enabled us to do more markets.
In 2006 Jimmy & Eddie attended butchery courses in Ashtown National Food Centre and Athlone IT which were run by Laois Leader. We engaged the services of the National Food Centre to pursue a new product development course, again with help from Laois Leader. This course has been conducted by Paddy Ward and is ongoing. As a result we are now able to produce a number of new products, including our own homemade sausages, dry-cured bacon and ham, dry cured corned and spiced beef.
We supply a number of farmers markets across Ireland (Please click HERE for details) and also supply direct to restaurants and hotels,(eg Brooklodge Hotel in Macreddin village,Glendalough Fayre,The Gallic Kitchen and Stradbally Fayre.
Our Mission Statement
