We strive to grow the finest potatoes in Ireland using responsible and sustainable farming methods. We aim to fulfil our customer’s needs, whilst doing what we love and know best.
Here at Rockvale Farm, we understand the importance of product traceability. Our product is traceable from the seed potato that falls into the ground in the spring time, through all the different steps until it reaches the customer’s fork. Hence, the saying “From farm to fork”. At Rockvale Farm all our product is labelled for traceability prior to leaving the farm. We are fully Bord Bia certified which also promotes traceability and means all our product is quality assured.
Sunlight.. given our prime southern location in North Cork we receive more sunlight hours at a warmer temperature in a year than most places in the country. While it may not seem like an important factor, any increase in sunlight hours can increase the potato crops maturity thus allowing for the perfect fry.

Keep an eye out for our bag!
To support and advertise our quality chipping potatoes, we have created our own Rockvale Farm Bag. Only Premium quality frying potatoes will find there way into this bag. We hope that this branded bag will help identify the quality of our product and make it easier for you to recognize us!
Meadowfresh Foods Ltd source their produce from dedicated growers in the south of Ireland. Our growers take pride in producing a quality Irish product with a full traceability system intact. This gives our customers complete confidence in the quality of our products. Cyrus and Colin Buttimer of Rockvale Farm near Fermoy, Co Cork are one of our dedicated growers, growing top quality produce for both chipping and processing. We have developed a good working relationship with Rockvale Farm over the years and continue to work with them to produce the top quality product they grow from the rich soils of the Blackwater Valley.
John Geary - Managing Director
It was a real pleasure to meet with Colin & Cyrus back in 2016 when the then ‘young teenager’ sat opposite me to discuss the possibilities of exploring the feasibility of a Potato Supply Contract from Rockvale Farm in Cork to Tayto Snacks here in Ashbourne.
We began with small trial plots which performed extremely well and since then we have grown together and hope to grow further into the future.
Tayto Snacks are pleased to help a young Potato Grower in a very difficult market.
Most importantly - Rockvale Farm grown potatoes made beautiful crisps for the nations favourite!
