The Meade Family, like all Irish farm families, has always spent a lot of their ‘down’ time talking ‘shop’ or in this case, weather, harvest, etc. around the kitchen table. They debate about things like the best variety of spud, whether they should plant onion or carrots in a particular field. Thanks to their love of their family farm business, it has grown from being a small potato supplier to local shops to a grower, packer and distributor to retailers nationwide.
Philip Sr. believes that bringing people good quality food to eat is as noble a vocation as there is. The next generation of Meades are following in his footsteps; they still believe that bringing premium quality, sustainable produce to consumers is a truly worthy enterprise.
