SeanNua Farm is a small-scale regenerative farm located in East Cavan at the foot of Loughanleagh mountain between the towns of Bailieborough and Kingscourt. Their aim is to provide their local community with nutrient dense food whilst improving the environment and contributing to the creation of a robust farm ecosystem.
SeanNua Farm raise pastured poultry on chemical free land and feed only high-quality organic feeds. From their feathered friends they have the best pasture raised eggs on the market for sale. They have also introduced pastured raised geese. A fantastic alternative to Turkey during the festive season- or any time of the year.
They also have a market garden where they grow beautiful nutrient dense vegetables from organic seeds. The market garden is no dig, no spray; and everything is produced naturally without the use of any chemicals.
You will find all their produce available to buy at Clonmellon farmers market and Collinstown market. You can also buy their produce online on the Neighbourfood market in Belturbet.
