An array of fresh goods from peppers to

smoked garlic...


Alongside our own farm produce we sell vegetables and fruit from peppers to sweet potatoes. We like to offer something a bit different too.


For example, try smoked garlic. It is generally made, like smoked fish, with oak chips. Roast it, squeeze out the garlic and spread on one of our rustic breads and serve with smoked salmon or a thick slice of gammon ham and olives. Who cares about garlic breath!

Turnips


Turnips are great for adding to soups and stews and for mashing (with butter and plenty of black pepper!). 


Closely related to the radish, they add a zing to your cooking with their slightly hot taste.

Parsnips


Sweeter than carrots and with a long shelf life (store unwashed in a plastic bag in your fridge).


They are a real winter treat, developing their full flavour after an extended period of cold weather, when they begin converting starches to sugar.

Golden beetroot


Not as common as red beets, golden beets are a bit sweeter and a bit less messy in cooking and fantastically versatile. Delicious roasted, or made into a magnificent chutney, they are equally delicious peeled and grated and added to salads. We sell red beets too!

Dirty carrots


We are known for our ‘dirty carrots’ – we wouldn’t dream of washing them! A bit of soil preserves the flavour and texture and their popularity proves it.


Native to Afghanistan, carrots were known to both the Greeks and Romans. In fact, the Greeks called the carrot "Philtron" and used it as a love medicine!

Potatoes

We grow several varieties but crop mainly Maris Piper (we always say that the M.P. stands for ‘multi purpose’) and sell in bags from 2.5kg to 25 kg.
