About Attyflin Estate
Attyflin Estate is set on a historic 250 acres demesne in Co Limerick and boasts a rich food production heritage. It was acquired by the O Connell family in 2002 who embarked on an intensive land refurbishment campaign with a phased plan to replenish the estate’s 40,000 hardwood trees and in more recent years, the walled garden and commercial apple orchards have been extensively planted out.
Through widespread travel, in particular visiting centres of excellence in the South Tyrol region, the Attyflin Estate owners gained an insight into best practices in the agri-food/tourism industries which inspired them to create a brand of fine artisan beverages and foods.
Significant investment has been made on the estate and Attyflin Estate is proud to promote a bud to bottle process. Using ingredients from the Attylin Estate orchards and walled garden, the team presses, bottles and packages the Attyflin Estate range of award-winning juices, apple cider vinegar, preserves and chutneys.
NeighbourFood operates in Ireland and the UK. It was developed in Cork by Jack Crotty and Martin Poucher. The vision of the initiative is to build a food network that works within communities and promotes small scale producers and fairer food prices.
