A Little About Us

The Happy Pear started out back in 2004 with Steve, Dave, a tiny shop and a dream of helping people to eat more veg!

Fast forward 15 years, The Happy Pear now consists of our cafe and shop in Greystones, Wicklow, 60 products, 7 online courses, 5 cookbooks, a farm, a roastery, and a community of over 1 million people living healthier!

All that said, the mission is still the same, to help everyone to get healthier and be happier!


David and Stephen Flynn

Dave & Steve had been travelling the world and as twin power goes, on opposite sides of the world they switched to a plant based diet within a week of each other. The Happy Pear seed was sown.

We are all about a healthier, happier world. We absolutely love rising early and heading to Greystones beach to catch the sunrise. We appreciate every day and really believe that the key to happiness is good health and a great support network. We love nothing more than inviting over the troops and cooking up a storm!

Check out our latest book - The Veg Box: 10 Vegetables, 10 Ways. The perfect collection for vegans, vegetarians, or anyone looking to eat more plant-based recipes. This vibrant book is packed with over 100 new recipes that use just ten ingredients or less and showcase the delicious and diverse ways you can enjoy each vegetable. It's full of tips on eating more sustainably with family-friendly meals, quick weeknight dinners and sweet treats. This is healthy eating for our planet, our bodies and our tastebuds.

You are part of a world brimming with bountiful wonder and endless possibilities.

It may feel like you are just a tiny part, but you have powers beyond your imagination- the power to change your life, the power to change your community, the power to change the world itself. With every decision you make, you can help make the world better. Together, those tiny changes can generate a massive positive impact for yourself, for those you love and for the planet.

We want to play our part and help you make one small step today. One decision for the better. Maybe it's just about what you're going to eat, or how you're going to move. Maybe it's about how you see your life and the lives of those around you. We believe in the power of people. People like you. People willing to play their part, no matter how small it is. The world needs you. Your community needs you. Your body needs you.

Eat well. Feel Good. Live Better

Through The Years

Our farm

We run a 4 acre organic, regenerative farm based in Kilcoole, Co Wicklow just 10 mins south of Greystones, focused on minimum till or no dig practices where we not only adhere to the current organic growing standards but also focus on improving the soil microbe health and increasing the biodiversity around the farm through planting a mix of different pollinator species.

We produce up to 40 different crops across the full year and we provide these through a number of different channels. Our central focus is on our CSA veg box scheme which is a Community Supported Agriculture scheme where members subscribe for an agreed number of weeks to receive a weekly box of the freshest local and in season veg and can collect it from a number of different collection points in the local area.

We also provide as much organic veg to The Happy Pear kitchen and shop in Greystones as we can across the year, we provide fresh herbs to our production facility and we sell a number of crops to local stores around the wider Greystones area.

We also have a purpose built indoor farm specialising in growing the most nutrient dense foods on the planet namely living sprouts, micro greens and wheatgrass which are available across Ireland through SuperValu, Centra and through leading foodie stores such as Nolan’s of Clontarf, Fresh market, The Hopsack etc. We began this venture in 2009 and have been using certified organic seeds since the beginning and in 2018, our Bean Mix and Alfalfa sprouts have become certified organic products themselves.

Each sprout we grow has a range of different benefits - for example, our Organic Bean Mix is high in protein and high in fibre and our Organic Alfalfa Sprouts are great for stabilising blood sugar levels and are packed full of digestive enzymes making them easier to digest and absorb. These sprouts are all fantastic in any salad, sandwich or used as a garnish to top off any dish.

Our roastery

In March 2015, we began our journey into Speciality Coffee Roasting. After travelling to many countries visiting cafes, roasteries and attending lots of inspiring coffee events, we took off to Edinburgh to study Coffee Roasting with John Thompson of Coffee Nexus. Today, we roast for our café in Greystones and for the Irish market, with our retail coffee packs available in store and also for the Wholesale market.

We're very happy to have created a great barista team who are dedicated and passionate and together with our roasters Paul and Shane are committed to sourcing, roasting and serving some of the most amazing tasty Speciality Coffee we can find.
