WE DON'T SIMPLY TALK
A GOOD GAME
In Ireland they call somebody who talks a good game a hurler or a ditch; meaning they are full of blarney. They can tell you how to do something, or how it should be done, but they lack the expertise to do it themselves. After more than 20 years as a company of leading brands and green technologies, we’ve honed and mastered our craft, all without talking a load of blarney. Because we believe if you’re going to talk the talk, you need to be able to walk the walk!

We were nerds long
before it was cool.

A few facts about Karen Sinclair Drake: she hates having her picture taken and is waaaay too humble for her own good - maybe it's a Brit thing. She's fierce when it comes to knowing her stuff and calling out a fake when she sees it. She's a twenty year green chemist veteran who is most at home in her wellies walking around the glass houses (our ‘labs’) and fields and seeing the wildlife thrive.
THE LIVING LABORATORY
No posh offices for us research nerds, we spend more time in our greenhouses studying soil bacteria and plants – and we couldn’t be happier. Most of our labs are portable, meaning we can move between farms. However, our manufacturing sites, you'll be pleased to know, are very much rooted and proudly based across two great nations in both the US and UK.
A RIGHT ROYAL COLLABORATION
We feel incredibly privileged to have worked with many wonderful people and companies over the years, but one of our most exciting collaborations to date was with an established UK homeopathic company with Royal Warrants of Appointment to HM The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales. We developed plant-based transdermal bases using some herbs from a certain Royal farm. Get us!
