The English Season is fast approaching as we start the see the first of the new season produce!
A few of our favourites have to be Jersey Royals, you cannot mistake their unique and flavoursome taste! Wye Valley Asparagus is another favourite, when
this arrives on menus you know you
are coming into Spring!
We are hoping to see the first of our English Cheddar Strawberries for Mother’s Day!
Our Crimson Black Grapes have
a wonderful rich juicy flavour.
Quince is closely linked to the Pear family due to its appearance however it’s slightly larger and has a bright yellow knobbly skin, this isn’t the only thing to differentiate this fantastic fruit. Its tough spongy flesh is fantastic for paste or ‘membrillo’ which the Spanish often accompaniment with Cheese, so why
not give it a go!
We have Superb Micro Mids are available.
Yellow Bag Marfona Potatoes are locally grown in Devon.
Bunch Beetroots are one to order at the moment, their outstanding colour and earthy taste are just great!
Bunched Carrots not only look great
but taste great too!
Our small but mighty Broad Beans are available, why not accompany them with our Fresh Peas.
First of the Wild Garlic is here, with its incredible pungent smell it’s hard to miss!
Purple Sprouting is plentiful and ready
for your plate.
Sweet Pointed Hispi Cabbage, like the name suggests has a soft sweeter taste, great for stir-fry or a hearty stew!
Not only do we have our 6kg boxes of Forced European Rhubarb, we now have in stock our superb UK grown Wye Valley Forced in 5kg boxes!
English Rhubarb is often smaller in size so when ordering please specify which you would prefer.
Black Cabbage has sadly now finished for the season.
Mixed Chantenay Carrots have now finished for the season however we do have Dual Chantenay Carrots which contain Purple and Orange Carrots, why not give these a go?!
The shortage of Tarragon is slowly improving. The reason for the shortage is due to the crop not having enough of the right growing conditions. Tarragon needs 12 hours of sunlight and 12 hours of darkness but due to the weather being overcast there hasn’t been enough sunlight. The farmers are trying to replicate the conditions however the crop isn’t receiving enough ambient light.
Just to Note
It’s that time of year again to start counting down to Mother’s Day. If you require any specialist items please order early to avoid any disappointment. This includes Baby Veg and Edible Flowers. If you are able to order your dry store goods early we would recommend to ensure we have the stock and availability for you.
