Cotter Farm Oats
Billy and Bernard Cotter, local farmers near Castletownroche in North Cork, have recently ventured into oats due to their recognized health benefits and as a wholesome grain choice.
They’ve transformed a farm building into a fully operational mill, with the help of their children, and imported milling equipment from China, successfully assembling it themselves. They now cultivate gluten-free oats on their farm, using them to create Cotter Farm Gluten-Free Porridge. This is very much a family-driven project, with the support of volunteers, all committed to delivering a top-quality product.
The Cotters prioritize quality, as reflected in their achievement of necessary licenses and certifications, ensuring that their product meets stringent standards. They’ve been audited and certified by the Association of European Coeliac Societies, allowing them to use the cross-grain symbol on their packaging.
They look forward to expanding their reach and providing their gluten-free porridge to a wider audience
