Producer in Wicklow;

The Birds and the Teas use seasonal ingredients to make wholesome and delicious tea-time favourites with a truly modern twist.


Coming from a farming background, and now living in County Wicklow, brings an understanding of the seasonality of Irish produce and how to use it to its full potential.

Olive’s mum always baked and made her own jams and chutneys – everything from blackberry and crab-apple jelly in the autumn, to elderflower cordial in the early summer. For Pat it was summers spent on his Uncles farm, which instilled in him an appreciation for country living and homemade seasonal delights.

After many years working in the corporate world, we are now rediscovering our passion for using fresh seasonal ingredients to make wholesome and delicious tea-time favourites with a truly modern twist.


We hope you enjoy our chutneys and relishes. 

Love from our Nest in Wicklow, “The Garden of Ireland”,

Olive and Pat Germaine
