Galway has a vibrant and growing local food sector built on strong primary production.
There are 13,445 farms in County Galway with agriculture playing a major role in the development of the county’s food culture.
The prominence of farming means there is an abundance of fresh high-quality produce for those providing food offerings both on and off the farm. This is particularly notable in the areas surrounding Tuam which is Galway’s largest town.
In recent years farms in Galway have found creative ways to diversity beyond traditional farm systems.
