Springtime ... our new season vegetables are popping their heads up and will soon be here...
Open 7 days a week, 9am-6pm
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!
Turnips are great for adding to soups and stews and for mashing (with butter and plenty of black pepper!) but they’ve also become the new ‘hip’ vegetable in restaurants.
Closely related to the radish, they add a zing to your cooking with their slightly hot taste.
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.
