Ballyhoura Apple Farm

Ballyhoura Apple Farm is located in the beautiful hillside town of Kilfinane, Co Limerick.  Here at Ballyhoura Apple Farm we value our roots in the local community and cherish Ireland’s traditions of localism, co-operation, support and friendship.  One of our core objectives is to ensure that we make a fitting contribution to the community of which we are proud to be a part. 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, stock and barrel - from Churchtown to Kilfinane in 2014. Maurice Gilbert is CEO and chief mixologist at Ballyhoura Apple Farm and is constantly working on new product development and marketing. Our favourite picture of the orchard was taken in June 2015 where you can just see Kilfinane Church steeple in the distance. We think our Orchard is such a beautiful and serene place but we know we are biased!

Health and Wellness

Health and wellness are 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.


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.
