The fertile Kilkenny limestone soils are uniquely suited to produce delicious apples and apple juice organically and the products made by the Calder-Potts family do not disappoint.
Highbank Organic Orchards in County Kilkenny was built by the Calder-Potts family in the 17th Century. The first apple orchards were planted by them in 1969 to compliment hop gardens. The Calder-Potts know their apples and the varieties grown on the land are specifically chosen for their juicing properties which are uniquely complex and full of health giving vitamins and minerals.
Offering apple juice, cider, mulled apple juice and their very own orchard syrup, the organic farm shop at the Highbank Organic Orchards is well worth a visit. Affiliations: Taste of Kilkenny Food Trail.
