Discovering Green Acres

James O’Connor, the Founder of Green Acres, comes from a long line of business people who were an integral part of the Wexford community. Over the generations, the O’Connor family included solicitors, bakers, builders, and merchants.

Dating from 1860, James is the sixth generation of his family to carry on business in the town. It started with M J O’Connor his Great, Great Grandfather, who set up Frank O’Connor & Co Ltd at 54 North Main Street Wexford, trading as Bakers, Grocers, and Confectioners.

James commenced his commercial life in the fruit and vegetable business traveling to and from Dublin. He started by taking Wexford produce to be sold in the Dublin markets and returning with produce not readily available, to supply to the shops and restaurants of Wexford. This is where the “every visit is a discovery” belief was rooted.

The Green Acres Experience

The Green Acres Character

On Saturday, October 27th, 1956, the Irish Times published a profile of Fintan O’Connor, one of James forebears. The profile touched on the character of Wexford Town describing Fintan as “a character in a town of character” and went on to say that ……. “for Wexford, perhaps because it lies out in its own corner of Ireland, not on the way to anywhere or from anywhere, has cultivated down the centuries a strongly independent outlook. The very aspect of its narrow streets is a reminder of its history; here have lived and fought the Viking and the Norman, the Cromwellian and the Irish Rebel. Like the country behind it, it is a warm town with an air of busy prosperity”.

A perfect reflection of the Green Acres brand – go and experience it for yourself.
