“I first came across Trimalawn Farm Herbs at the Farmer’s Market in Sligo. I was amazed at the range of herbal tea mixtures and spice blends they were selling. They make 15 different herbal tea blends, using their knowledge of the medicinal properties of the herbs to create tasty and therapeutic mixtures.e.g; “feeling good flower tea”; “cold and flu brew”; “mama to be tea”; “love your life tea”. Their range of spices is equally impressive and creative, you want to buy them all! All the Indian Blends, spices for Thai, Caribean, Moroccan, Mediterranean etc. all the spices and seeds you could want: paprika, cayenne, chili, cumin, coriander etc,pickling spices and also the herbs they grow themselves. In the spring they sell a fantastic selection of plants to grow – vegetables and herbs. They also have a great website with loads of information about growing and using herbs and also which herbs to grow near certain vegetables to encourage or discourage particular insects!
They are generous with their knowledge and want to encourage people to grow and use their own herbs. I think they are making a great contribution to sustainability here in the north west and should definitely receive a Local Heroes Award.” Miriam
