Kehoe’s Fruit & Veg
Michael is a fifth generation vegetable grower based in the sunny south east. He works in partnership with his father, Michael (Mick) Sr. The farm is based in a small area called Crossabeg, where Mick Sr. bought a small parcel of ground in 1979. Crossabeg borders Wexford town and the River Slaney. The business has expanded significantly since Michael finished his diploma in horticulture from Kildalton College in 2003. Michael says, “We are blessed with all types of land to accommodate us from deep earthy clays to loamy sandy soils.” One quarter of the land is owned and the rest is rented or on long-term lease.
