Ballymakenny Farm in Louth comes up with genius drive-thru spud service


An Irish farm in Louth has come up with an innovative way to sell their potatoes. Ballymakenny Farm outside Drogheda has opened a contactless drive-thru potato service for those in need of the humble spud to add to their meals.

Best known for supplying top quality and unusual varieties to potatoes for restaurants across Ireland, the Louth farm was forced to rethink its business model.

The result of their brainstorm was the Ballymakenny Farm Spudshack, a service which aims to keep the pub well-fed but also is very conscious of how we must adhere to social distancing.

Customers are invited to rock up in their cars and pick up their beloved spuds without having to leave the vehicle.

Some of Ballymakenny’s varieties include heritage potatoes like Rag Emmalie, Violetta, Pink Fir Apple and Mayan Gold. The farm also delivers the potatoes if you can’t get to them.

The efforts of Ballymakenny Farm are just one of the great examples of Irish businesses who are popping on their creative caps during these trying times.

For those looking for something extra, they also sell other vegetables like purple sprouting broccoli. Keep an eye out on their Twitter page for more information.
