Sharon and Gordon Greene and family live on a fifth-generation family farm, where they hand harvest wild rosehips, elderberries, damsons, elderflowers, gorse, rowanberries, sloes, spring nettles, blackberries, honeysuckle and more. From these incredible, wild Irish ingredients they make syrups, sauces, fruit cheeses, jellies, pontack and shrubs. Wild food used in this way is part of Irish food heritage, a simple taste that has been almost forgotten, and Wild Irish Foragers and Preservers strives to recreate this taste of the past with recipes from a bygone era.
