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.
Rockvale Farms is committed to providing you with the freshest, healthiest potatoes. We hope that our branded bags 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.

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!
This time last week Minister Pippa Hackett, Bord Bia, Teagasc and the Department of Agriculture visited Rockvale Farm to view and support our new dedicated chipping store. This was in aid of helping Irish potato growers to supply Irish chip shops and therefore reduce imports. https://t.co/gHlxjnOvgG
