We sell fresh from the farm during harvest in late July and August. But to get that bursting goodness all year round we have perfect individually quick frozen fruit (IQF), topped and tailed and ready to use.

When defrosted it is still as healthy and nutritious as the day it was picked and frozen.

We are proud to tell you our food and farming story. But don’t just take our word for it. Read what Ireland’s top cookery experts say about us.

  • “I am a very passionate supporter of local food and food producers in Ireland and am delighted to use Mr Jeffares Blackcurrants from Ballykelly Farms in my Cookery School. We’ve noticed that the Wexford blackcurrant seems to have a wonderful ‘tart’ aroma that is very noticeable as soon as a box is opened. The distinctive flavour, depth of colour and natural sweetness make them particularly special. In my opinion these qualities are essential in blackcurrants, which can only come from the warm sheltered soils of the Wexford region with its more than average levels of sunshine. Wexford is the only region in Ireland where blackcurrants are commercially grown, it has to be supported.”

    Darina Allen, The Ballymaloe Cookery School.

  • “I choose Mr Jeffares Blackcurrants from Ballykelly farms at the Shelbourne in Dublin for their distinctive tangy flavour and the superior taste. The fullness of texture that these blackcurrants add to my dishes is something I have not previously experienced. We are committed wherever possible to sourcing local produce and to be able name Mr Jeffares Blackcurrants on our menu helps further endorse our philosophy.”

    Gary Hughes, Executive Chef The Shelbourne Hotel.
