Welcome to O’Shea Farms

The O’Shea Family have been farming on the banks of the River Suir in Piltown, Co. Kilkenny for over 200 years. We take great pride in continuing to care for the land before we pass it on to the next generation. From our farm to your plate, we harvest and select the best of nature’s produce for delivery to our customers – freshly, simply, daily.

We work in partnership with Iverk Produce, supplying them with potatoes and carrots. Working locally with over 50 growing partners in the South East allows us to maximise the freshness of our produce. O’Shea Farms are verified members of Bord Bia Origin Green, the world’s only national food and drink sustainability programme.


The O’Shea family have farmed on the banks of the River Suir in Piltown, Co Kilkenny since the early 1800’s. Thomas O’Shea came from Kerry and settled in Ardclone, Piltown. Records show that in 1828, Thomas was renting 21 acres from Frederick Ponsonby, the 3rd Earl of Bessborough.

Today the family farm over 1,500 acres, with the help of many dedicated staff. Nine members of the O’Shea family work in various roles. Current directors are cousins James and TJ O’Shea, the sixth generation of O’Shea’s to farm the land at Ardclone.
