[Meade Farm]
Philip Meade Sr. began selling his Queen potatoes to local shops in the northeast of Ireland in the mid-1970s, and by 1982, Meade Farm was officially incorporated. Nestled in the heart of the Boyne Valley, the family farm thrived, enjoying the benefits of the rich, fertile soil and a convenient location in Lobinstown, County Meath.
Meade’s passion for potatoes eventually extended to Irish vegetables and fruit and we now have been growing, packing and distributing premium quality potatoes, fruit, vegetables, salads and organics to retailers across Ireland for over 35 years. While the Meade family specialise in growing potatoes and carrots, we work with a team of growers who are as passionate about produce as we are. With a commitment to sustainability ingrained in the family DNA, we are dedicated to responsible farming and innovation in production methods and new products. 
Meade Potato Company are now launching Ireland’s and the UK’s only native
food grade potato starch operation.
 
Our gluten free Meade Potato Starch works just like corn flour - only better!  It is more effective than corn flour at thickening sauces, soups and stews - meaning you need 30% less of it.  It is also very popular now as a flour substitute when coating meat or veggies for frying.  It gives a light, crispy texture, much like tempura.  As it is certified gluten free, it can be used in gluten-free baking.  Its versatility makes it a must have for your store cupboard…try it out and you’ll be converted!
 Made in our Boyne Valley Farm by extracting starch from surplus potatoes, our starch has a unique green supply chain model that has garnered many awards and represents a real win for sustainability and for the circular economy.

Our Meade Potato starch is now listed on Tesco online and in selected Tesco stores, as well as in Evergreen stores and online, selected health food stores and Smith’s SuperValu Johnstown, Navan.

 Recipes using our potato starch and more information about the product, and all our fresh produce can be found on www.meadefarm.ie

With the next generation at the helm, the Meades look forward to providing healthy, sustainable produce for Irish consumers for decades to come.
