TamiJoy was raised up by her maternal Irish grandparents in the US. Her love for the outdoors came from toddling around with her Irish grandfather, born and raised in Ireland, where she now resides. He instilled in her an appreciation to respect the land, whatever you do, do it to the best of your ability and steady and slow always wins the race. Her grandfather was an avid gardener, and he enlightened her with the knowledge that food produced by one’s own hand is the healthiest, tastiest and should be shared with anyone and everyone that comes to the table. Then a visit to Ireland to see her grandfather’s home, that he often talked about, made her realize where she would like to live. As as fate would have it, TamiJoy and her spouse, Rocky, bought a famine stone cottage next door to the family home and restored it to a beautiful home overlooking the sea, filled with travel memorabilia and surrounded by acres of farm land.

TamiJoy learned to cook from her two grandmother’s, who taught her the basics of home cooking. And over the years, she developed her own bespoke methods using only the finest, locally sourced ingredients, including her own organically grown vegetables and fruits along with locally sourced seafood and meats. Come meet TamiJoy and experience her love of Ireland, walk the gardens, meet the farm animals and indulge your tastebuds around her farm table.
