Kenneth and Jenny Keavey took over the land in Corrandulla over 14 years ago, creating what we know today as Green Earth Organics farm. Inherited from his grandfather and father, there is history and love in this soil and everything produced right down to the roots.

This operation brings fresh, organic produce straight to our doors, allowing us to share this love of good, high quality and local food into our own homes.
