Keelings is a family owned Irish company. Our family’s expertise in growing dates back to 1926 when we established our farm & in the 1930s, we began growing fruits & salads and supplying them to the local Dublin markets. With such a long history of growing, we like to think we know a thing or two about fruit and we look forward to sharing our knowledge, passion and love for healthy produce and recipes with you & your family.

Our family farm is set in a uniquely unspoilt part of the country, just a short distance from the award-winning village of Abbeyshrule, Co. Longford. Here we grow our strawberries in the traditional way, slowly and in harmony with nature. We then work quickly to ensure everything is picked and delivered within hours. To give you the freshest, sweetest strawberries – just like you remember them.


Welcome to the home of Greens Berry Farm. For over 20 years our family business has grown fresh, juicy, premium quality Wexford strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and gooseberries from our fruit farm in Gorey, Co Wexford.

Kearns Fruit Farm was established over forty years ago on the family farm at the foothills of Mount Leinster. Originally started by Pat Kearns, we began growing fruit for jam production and canning back in the 1950’s. The farm has now developed into a large family run business producing and growing soft fruit for the Irish market.

We are a family run fruit farm based near Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford. At Greenhill Fruit Farm Ltd our aim is to provide some of the best fruit farm produce available in Ireland and make it available to the public, to local markets and for wholesale at affordable prices. Greenhill Fruit Farm grows fruit in the traditional method as well as in the table-top system.
