Ballyhoura Apple Farm's orchard is located in Kilfinane in County Limerick. Our Farm Shop storage facility is located in Kilfinane town at Ballyhoura Artisan Food Park. Ballyhoura Apple Farm was founded in 2004 in Churchtown in North Cork by Gerry Murphy and Maurice Gilbert. In a Herculean manoeuvre the 4,500 tree orchard was moved - lock, stick and barrel - from Churchtown to Kilfinane in 2014. Maurice Gilbert is the full-time co-owner of Ballyhoura Apple Farm and our Chief Mixologist constantly working on new product development and marketing. Our picture was taken in June 2015 with Kilfinane Church steeple in the distance. We think its such a beautiful and serene place but we know we are biased!
The fruit and vegetable used in Ballyhoura Apple Farm juices support other food producers in the local community and help to create and sustain local employment. Our use of recycled packaging, glass bottles and wooden bins and NO AIR MILES helps us maintain a low carbon footprint. The overall “cost” to the community represents really good value.
Health and Wellness
Health and wellness is to the fore in our product development. It is Maurice’s belief that the blending of our juices must contribute to the overall wellness of our customers. This is evident in the choice of blends already developed.
