Mill Road, Inistioge, Co. Kilkenny[email protected]
We are Rosemarie and Sile Hardy, 'Hardy Food'. We started our artisan food business simply enough by looking for a good quality pesto - we now make artisan Oat bread. Originally we could not find a single pesto that did not havesome filler, preservative or alternative ingredient in it. So we started making our own. An unadulterated pesto to an original Italian recipe. To cover the cost of making such a delicious but expensive production we decided to sell our pesto at the local food market. Very soon we realised it was the bread on which we offered the tasters of our pesto that was of more interest to our customers!

The beautiful Woodstock Gardens and Arboretum are located overlooking the River Nore Valley and the picturesque village of Inistioge. The gardens date to the 1740's with the main development taking place in the 1800's. A period of disrepair followed during the 1900's following the burning of Woodstock House, however in 1999, Kilkenny County Council undertook an ambitious programme of garden restoration which is now well advanced. Features include a walled garden, rose garden, rockery garden, a recreated Turner Conservatory, a collection of rare and exotic trees in the arboretum and much more including many tranquil woodland walks.
