Something amazing happened here in Ireland. I’ve seen farmers & businesses coming together and selling their products online – because this is the sense of community for those in need. In such a short time they managed to open up online shops:
Fresh salad, beetroot, potatoes, milk and cheese delivered to your doorstep thanks to the enormous efforts of Sean Hussey >> reach him on Twitter here and on the shop’s page. With one click you can buy seasonal mixed fruit (€20) or veg (€25) boxes – carefully arranged so you can go on a week with a variety of tasty meals. You can also add individual items and buy as well directly from Irish producers: fresh and sweet Village Dairy milk, Velvet Cloud delicate sheep’s yoghurt, colourful and ingenious Mooncoin Beetroot, inspiring Shiitake Mushrooms, delightful St Tola Goat Cheese, amazing discovery Rhubarb, fresh Donnacha Donnelly vegetables and tasty eggs. The minimum order value is €25 and delivery is free.
And when you need freshly milled flour for you bread you can always reach out to Ballymore Organics. The taste of this flour is a rainbow in the world of tasting good food. Even if you’ve never baked before I can tell you that your bread will be perfect 🙂
Below is another example from local businesses in Lucan village, Dublin. It includes Fresh’n’fruity store, Collins butchers, Artisan Bakery and Powers wine so we can have all the goodies in the same delivery. “There is no delivery charge for the general Lucan area and deliveries can be left at customers door removing the need for one to one contact. Ideally we would like our customers to place their orders daily by 2 o’clock for delivery the next day or customers can call the store to see if we have any daily slots open”, says David Muigan of Fresh’n’Fruity for FinanceTales.com.
Also the local butcher family shop J. Collins & Sons have announced that they can do home delivery in the area and you can pay on the phone. All details on their social page:
Other farmers have come together and sell boxes with seasonal fresh veggies or store cupboard essentials. Great Northern Larder is one of those doing incredible things for the community, for people that want to stay safe and buy weekly as they usual do.
They even advise their customers how to “navigate” financially through the coronavirus crisis.
