This July, we're hosting many lovely events in Organico and we'd love for you to join us:
Taste: Durrus Cheese
Friday, 6th July in Organico Shop
It’s not just us who think Durrus Cheese is fantastic - the company has plenty of awards to prove that others do too! When Jeffa Gill founded Durrus Cheese in 1979, she was part of a small group of women who revitalized farmhouse cheesemaking in Ireland and sparked the country’s (still strong) artisan cheese movement. She and her team continue to make Durrus Cheese by hand to this day, sourcing milk from cows that graze in pastures in West Cork. Come and taste their semi-soft, washed-rind cheese with its full and balanced flavours that show off the best of Irish cheesemaking.
Wellness: Cholesterol Testing
Thursday, 12th July in Organico Shop
Appointments available from 10AM to 1PM
Free but booking is essential
PPC Galway will be on hand to offer blood cholesterol testing: an important test which sheds light on vital information for maintaining your health. If you would like to have the test, you must book ahead of time with us in the shop. It’s also necessary that you fast from the evening before the test.
Taste: Roaring Water Sea Vegetable
Friday, 13th July in Organico Shop
Come and try the products from Ireland’s oldest seaweed farm, Roaring Water Sea Vegetable. Founder Paul Cobb tapped into a natural resource when he began harvesting and processing seaweeds destined for the dinner table. Seaweed is ideal for the Irish diet thanks to its abundance along the coasts, its sustainability, its promotion of diversity among the fish population, and its rich source of nutrients. Paul produces dried seaweeds for cooking as well as tasty seaweed-based, vegan products including sausages, black puddings and burgers.
Art Exhibition: Works on Paper: Margaret Lonergan and Stuart Coughlan
Opening: Friday, 13th July, 4-6PM, Organico Cafe
Exhibition Runs: Monday, 25th June to Saturday, 4th August
As part of this year’s West Cork Literary Festival, we’re delighted to display a show by the graphic artists Margaret Lonergan and Stuart Coughlan. Both artists explore the interplay between the written word, language, and visual design. It’s an exhibition not to be missed.
Taste: The Hungry Crow chocolate
Friday, 20th July
11AM-3PM in Organico Shop
You may look at the vegan, raw, wheat-free treats produced by The Hungry Crow and think they are too pretty to eat — but what a shame that would be! Niamh O’Reilly and Mark Stewart started the business out of Clonakilty to provide sweet and satisfying confectionery made entirely of wholesome, nourishing ingredients. Niamh’s inspired flavour combinations make for unique and luscious chocolates that will appeal to all of your senses. We’re really looking forward to sharing these beautiful, crave-worthy treats with you!
