The Spillane Family

At Gibbstown Farms, the spillane family have grown, harvested, washed and packed full-flavoured potatoes that are traceable from field to fork.

We’ve been Growing High Quality potatoes since 1950

Gibbstown Farms are owned and run by the Spillane family. Started up in 1950 by Maurice Spillane. He originated from Cork and decide to travel to Co. Meath by horse and cart to the rich fertile land to start to grow Potatoes. Maurice got married and had a family of 3 boys and 4 girls. The sons helped work the land and the farm expanded over the years.

Meath is on the east coast of Ireland and has rich, bountiful clay soils which now boasts being the biggest potato producing county in Ireland. Maurice passed away in 2012, but his sons, grandsons & great grandchildren continue to build on the legacy and tradition of Irish farming. Now we farm both grain and potatoes – it’s a lot of work but we love it.
