We were delighted to attend the Listowel Food Fair 2016 Award Ceremony last Friday 11th of November in The Listowel Arms Hotel, where Ian received the “Local Food Hero Award”. Ian was nominated by Ruth O’Quigley, who used to run Roots Vegetarian Cafe in Tralee in the 90’s and is now retired in Listowel. We would like to thank Ruth and the Listowel Food Fair for this award, which recognises the intense work that Ian, Eileen and all of the Gortbrack Organic Farm team do in promoting organic food production, biodiversity and environmental education in Co. Kerry and beyond since 1990.
