Potato seed and onion sets will still be available for the sale alongside the fruits, vegetables and herbs listed below. We are once again delighted to make available Gortahork Cabbage, proud to play a part in the reintroduction of this rare variety into the area to which it belongs.

Gortahork Cabbage is a distinct variety of cabbage that was unique to the locality of northwest Donegal which had almost died out altogether. It is a landrace variety, which means that it was not selectively bred for specific characteristics but developed largely by natural processes, adaptating over time to the natural environment and conditions in the area.

It has large outer leaves so that the plant may spread up to a metre in diameter with a rounded head that can grow as big as a football. Extremely hardy it stands well through the winter. It is quite tender when cooked with an excellent flavour. In addition to being used as a kitchen vegetable it was a popular source of animal fodder over the harsher winter months.
