O’Keeffe Sawmills produces a comprehensive range of quality potato and vegetable boxes to meet the demands of all sectors of the industry. Each box is manufactured with strength and longevity in mind and can be made to any size or specification.
O’Keeffe Sawmills has its own fleet of trucks and also uses outside hauliers to deliver products such as pallets, and fencing post and rails. Alternatively, they can be collected from the depot here in Lismore. Our company offers a range of post and rail fencing for a variety of uses around the farm, garden or paddock. Manufactured from sawn native Irish softwoods, the post and rail timber fencing is competitively priced, easy to erect, ages well and is secure against stock.
Premium quality animal bedding is also produced for use in the farming and equine sectors. The
high level of dryness of this material is revealed in its maximum absorbency and odour-neutralisation performance. The wood shavings come in baled form, while the sawdust is
supplied in bulk bags of various sizes
