Ecotourism Ireland is an organisation set up to stimulate the development of ecotourism countrywide. To achieve these ends we have facilitated the development of an ecotourism quality label that we hope will stimulate the development of new ecotourism experiences in Ireland and at the same time defend the ethical values of existing ecotourism operators.In addition the label has been designed to guide visitors travel choices and help them to choose promoters of ecotourism products and the experiences they have on offer.
The unspoilt nature of many parts of Ireland has encouraged tourism businesses both North and South to establish themselves as “green” ecotourism operators. Ecotourism Ireland is working to develop these resources further with the aim of establishing Ireland as a world class ecotourism destination with a strong focus on high ecotourism standards.

Veyranno Ltd t/a Fruit Hill Farm
30 years ago Edite Rennings-Wandel and Manfred Wandel started a market garden growing organic Fruit and Vegetables a few miles outside Bantry, Co. Cork. The difficulty in getting good, suitable tools, organic fertilisers, seeds and other essentials for organic growing in Ireland prompted Eddi and Manfred to source these items abroad. The business idea to offer these to other organic growers and interested gardeners was born – and the first 11 page mail order catalogue was photocopied and posted early 1993.
25 years of environment friendly house, farm and garden supplies
Parallel to the growing organic sector in Ireland the new mail order business grew its product range and customer base. Many of these items are available through agents around the country like The Organic Centre.
From a few dozen tools, fertilisers and seeds the product range has grown to several thousand items covering everything from propagation to fertility building, from irrigation to crop protection and biological pest control to healthy living.
When the business run out of space on the home farm we moved 2015 into a spacious warehouse a few miles down the road. At the same time the business was incorporated and trades now as Veyranno Ltd t/a Fruit Hill Farm.
With the growing number of staff – all avid gardeners and/or former commercial growers – the business has strengthened its professional approach. Countrywide farm visits to organic or organically interested farmers, regular participation in events on organic demonstration farms, as well as always available telephone or email advice for private gardeners or commercial farmers are proof of our commitment to environment friendly farming and gardening.
Garraí Glas is a series about growing your own food, using traditional and organic methods. We’d all like to get a little closer to being self-sufficient, and Garraí Glas shows that you don’t have to spend hours a day working your heart out to do that. All you need is a patch in the back garden that you spend a few hours a week looking after.Traditional, organic methods don’t harm people, wildlife, water or the environment – and the feeling of picking and eating your own vegetables is very fulfilling.
