Nestled between the mountains and the coast, we don’t have the easiest growing conditions, but over the last 35 years, we’ve found what grows well for us. We work with other organic growers in the area to make sure that whatever they can grow well that we can’t we will buy from them as a preference and use the space we have for different crops that do work for us.
At different times you can expect us to be growing various varieties of kale, leeks, spring onions, herbs, various salad leaves, cucumbers, tomatoes, french beans, broad beans, runners, garden peas and mangetout, garlic, carrots, cabbages, lettuces, radishes, cucamelons, Jerusalem artichokes, edible flowers, squash and pumpkins, courgettes, peppers, chillis and aubergines, spinach, chard, purple sprouting broccoli, raspberries and strawberries. We experiment with new things too. This year we’re growing melons, we have a peach tree which gave us 10 peaches last year and even a struggling grapevine!
What we can’t grow we will source from as local as possible. Primarily we use Nick at Ritec Valley in Tenby as much as we can, we buy our Pembrokeshire potatoes from Caerfai Farm on the St. Davids peninsula, blueberries come from Charles and Helen at Blaengosen and a few other places in Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion. After that, we look to the Herefordshire borders, or Cornwall, and finally what doesn’t grow here, we buy in from the continent.
We are always looking for new suppliers and exciting new things to grow, so if you have any suggestions or requests, let us know.
