Welcome to Gilberts' Orchard & Farm shop
A visit to the Orchards & Farm Shop is a delightful opportunity to purchase locally, at reasonable prices, the seasonal produce of apples, grown locally in Ireland. Naturally derived from Irish apples is a delicious alternative drink, Irish apple juice, marketed under the Apple Barrel label. The juice is available in sweet tasting Red Label and in lighter sharper Green Label, contained in 750ml bottles, and in fridge boxes of 5 litre, and for even larger families of apple juice fans, a 10 litre fridge box, complete with a tap. Smaller 250ml bottles are available for picnics, these are also for sale in local cafes around Carlow.
A selection of Susan Gilbert’s artisan home baking, produced from the dedicated farm kitchen, is a delight. There are farm house jams, marmalade in several flavours, and a selection of maturing chutney. Of course, apple tarts made from the bramley cooking apples in season, or delicious Irish brown bread.
Visitors are welcome to explore the orchards and woodland, learn more about the production, or to have a picnic.
Opening hours. Wed - Sat from 10.00AM - 6.00PM
Carlow has much to offer with several artisan food producers in the surrounding County. In time, most of these artisan foods, from local cheese to free range eggs will be stocked in the farm shop.
