Our Story


Established in 1973 by Billy Deegan. 

Billy began by opening a Fruit and Vegetable shop Kilkenny in the early 70’s. As business grew Billy noticed it was hard to find consistency in the quality of the produce he was sourcing so he bought a farm. To meet demand he began growing an array of fresh vegetables and in turn was able to stand over the quality of everything he sold as it was grown by himself. This high standard of quality produce has followed the Deegan Family through the decades and it still remains the same today

In 2002 his son Ger Deegan came to work alongside his father having gained a wealth of experience working as operations and quality manager for global giant Fyffes. Ger now not only sources from local suppliers but fills the gaps in seasonal markets by importing only the finest produce from his contacts all over the world. He introduced a prepping facility, now all Deegans fresh vegetables can be hand or machine cut to the highest standard for your convenience.

2018 marked the year when Ger took over the family business from his father. Moving to a state of the art facility in Hebron Industrial Estate, Kilkenny . Ger believes that quality comes first and is meticulous about what goes out through his doors . The attention to detail and fast friendly service he provides is second to none.
