Welcome to Llewellyns Orchard

Definition:  "An orchard is an intentional planting of trees or shrubs that is maintained for food production"

Welcome to Llewellyns Orchard, the website for David Llewellyn’s Irish orchard and produce.

From our small-holding in the fertile countryside of North County Dublin (“The Kitchen Garden of Ireland”), we grow a range of fruits, and produce a selection of premium natural products from these fruits.

Apples have traditionally been our staple, but we now grow grapes, pears, cherries and strawberries. We make a range of speciality apple juices, natural real ciders, apple cider vinegar, and our very special balsamic apple cider vinegar.

Apart from that, we produce what is currently Ireland's only available wine, among a few other interesting and unique products, like Ireland's only Pear Juice and Ireland's only Balsamic Vinegar. 

As a small family-run enterprise, we are, unfortunately, not open to the public, as such. However, customers who wish to buy direct from us can collect produce from us at the fruit farm in Lusk, provided this has been arranged with us in advance.

Welcome to the website for David Llewellyn's award-winning range of Irish fruits, Apple juices, Real ciders, Irish wines and Irish apple cider vinegars.
