We plant broccoli (officially called Calabrese) in succession so that we can provide our customers with homegrown broccoli for as much of the season as possible. During the winter months and the 'hungry gap' our broccoli comes from organic growers in France or Spain.
Our carrots are freshly dug from the soil and are renowned for their wonderful flavour. When they arrive, store them in a cool place (in a bag) or in your fridge. Do not wash until you are ready to eat them; the soil helps retain flavour and nutrients and improves storage.
A large pale blue squash with a pink tinge when fully ripe. Delicious dark orange flesh with a lovely sweet and nutty flavour. This squash will keep (uncut) for months while it adorns your window sill. Beats butternut any day of the week but don't take my word for it! Try one.
Our homegrown tomatoes are available from July until November. For those of you who like to see a tomato or two in their kitchen for the rest of the year, we source either vine tomatoes or standard salad tomatoes from other growers in the UK. When there are no organic tomatoes left in the country, we source them from France, Italy or Spain.
