Diarmuids' Shopping Bag: Glenilen Farm

Welcome to the first Diarmuids' Shopping Bag review, this week I decided to review the Glenilen Farm range of products which are available in all Dunnes, Supervalu, Tesco and Superquinn.

Glenilen Farm is an Irish owned company based in the beautiful town of Drimoleague, near Bantry in West Cork. All their products are all natural with no colourings, additives or preservatives. One of their most popular products in their range is their yogurts- Strawberry, Raspberry, Plum, Apple and Rhubarb. All of which come in a cute distinctive glass jar. Some say that the yogurt has a strong taste, even a bitter taste, with a kick to it, but there's no disputing that this yogurt is the real deal. Many others on the market place have a high sugar content or are overly processed- not these guys, they are fresh, tasty and wholesome. Perfect just natural for breakfast with some muesli or as a light morning snack with some fruit. They are also perfect for breakfast when you have friends over, it makes quite the impression.

You might also be keen to taste their cheesecakes, mooses, their wonderful Crème Fraiche, their chocolate pots and country butter. Be sure to check them out every Thursday at Mahon Point Farmer's Market.
