A ram loiters outside Angela Carney’s home near Westport most days, hopefully waiting for a few leftovers. It doesn’t take long to understand why he’s so keen.

This secluded location in rural Mayo is the home of Harvest Moon Foods, where Angela produces pesto, hummus and soups using healthy, natural ingredients. The ram isn’t her only fan. Harvest Moon is stocked in 27 stores nationwide, with around 1,000 units leaving Westport each week.
