Ballintubber Farm allotments, Carrigtwohill, Co. Cork.

Located on farmland in Carrigtwohill, Co. Cork, Ballintubber Farm allotments grew up around David and Siobhan Barry’s full time business of vegetable growing.

Where better to teach yourself to grow fruit and veg than right next to a site which already grows early potatoes, unusual vegetables such as Romanesco cauliflower, white turnips, peace peas and sprouting broccoli, pumpkins for Halloween and trees for Christmas.

Beginners are especially welcome as the allotment owners would like everyone to enjoy the benefits of growing your own.
