Highbank Orchards were delighted to host the Organic Trust AGM 2015 this month at which Eanna Ni Lamhna gave the keynote address of the day. She highlighted the excellent performance in the fields of organic farmers all over the island of Ireland. "On average, organic farms support up to 35 species of birds in comparison to 16 for non-organic farms" according to Eanna.
Following AGM business, members enjoyed a guided tour of Highbank's distillery, orchards and apple press facility led by Rod. This was followed by a sumptuous organic lunch prepared by Louise & Lucy of Nude Food which was eaten to the accompaniment of a wonderful jazz trio.
