RTE's Home Grown

What farming traditions are still relevant today?  What can we learn from our ancestors about how to produce good Irish food?


Home Grown is a radio series on Irish traditions in food and farming that is broadcast on RTE Radio 1's Pat Kenny Show. From raw milk to native Dexter cattle, fresh blood pudding to blacksmithing, each programme features people around Ireland who are keeping traditional Irish skills alive. 


Home Grown with Ella McSweeney is on every Tuesday morning's Pat Kenny Show on Ireland's national broadcaster, RTE Radio 1.
