  • Mills and Flakers for fresh flour and flakes

    If you want the freshest flour possible with all the nutrition intact then there is no substitute for milling your own. In whole-grain foods, the plant's cellular walls protect nutrients from oxidation. The process of oxidation begins to occur as soon as grain is ground, exposing the cell's contents to oxygen in the air. Flour that is several days (or more) old, has been exposed to oxygen that inevitably diminishes its nutritional value. The only way to get full nutrition from whole grain foods is to mill them when you need them, right in your kitchen. All grains

  • Top Ten Hand Tools

    Unlike the bigger tools such as spades and forks hand tools are a more personal thing and are often appreciated in different ways.  First and foremost the tool has to be correct one for the job – but there are other considerations such as weight, reach, versatility, appearance and the all important tactile nature of the handle.  All of these needs are addressed when buying a quality product from a reputable manufacturer who has spent time designing the tool with the end user in mind.   Quality tools are what Fruit Hill Farm sells and they will give you many

  • What is Basalt or Rock Dust?

      Basalt is an igneous rock created through the cooling and solidification of magma and lava. When ground down into a fine powder, it makes a very good soil improver. Igneous rocks like basalt and granite have the highest mineral content, with basalt providing a greater balance of nutrients for optimal plant health and vitality. Basalt, or rock dust, continues to deliver a steady flow of nutrients over time, even as it decomposes. Basalt’s slow-release benefits make it an effective way to minimize deficiencies, particularly with fast-growing crops that
  • Weeds and Weeding

    A weed is a plant in the wrong place or a plant that we have not yet found a use or liking for – but they are still plants and part of the overall biodiversity that exist in nature.  Not necessarily the bad guys but not your best friends either! Benefits of weeds Weeds encourage Biodiversity. They attract pollinators and are part of a healthy eco-system. There is no such thing as a weedy lawn – look at it as a wildflower meadow or insect heaven.  A ‘perfect’ green lawn is akin to a desert from nature’s point of view. Weeds attract pollinators. Many
  • Cover and protect with netting

    Birds, rabbits and insects are unfortunately very efficient pests and will polish off a crop of strawberries or cabbages before you can blink.  Netting is the answer - but the trick is to get the right netting for the job. It is important to consider the size of the net mesh and the strength. You can either hold netting down with bags of gravel or stones  or make things easy for yourself and use our steel pins. They are 20cm long, made from steel and come in packs of 10 or boxes of 100. Can also be used to hold down drip-pipe irrigation. Strong and sturdy - will
  • Irrigation

    If you have a polytunnel you will know how long it takes to water your produce.  Why not install an irrigation system and free up all that time that you spend watering? Drip Irrigation Perhaps the easiest and most cost-effective way to water your crops is with a drip irrigation system where pipes are laid along the ground and water seeps out of spaced holes directly where your plants need the moisture.  For as little as approx. €85 you could irrigate an 8 mt tunnel.  You can also add to or change the layout of your system whenever you wish. Benefits of drip
  • Love your soil - learn about soil conditioners

    Is your soil good - or bad? Does it have a good diet, can it hold its drink?  Could it quite simply just be better – well behaved, good crops, good drainage and structure etc.  Most soils can be improved both in nutrient content and in structure by following good gardening practices.  Soil that is in good heart will be free-draining, easy to dig, have a crumbly texture and a healthy earthworm population. How to improve the condition of your soil Gathering leaves for leaf-mould Add organic matter as a soil conditioner. Compost and strawy animal manures provide
