Organic Marrowfat Peas at Little Bytham

Organic Marrowfat Peas at Little Bytham

by Josiah Meldrum May 10, 2021

The new 2021 crop of organic marrowfat peas are coming through beautifully at The Grange, farmed by Guy and John Turner of Turners of Bytham.

The cold and drying seedbed, followed by cool wet weather in early May, didn’t provided the easiest start to the year for peas, but the marrowfats are looking excellent.

We’re convinced that Guy and John grow the best organic marrowfat peas in the world. Honestly, a whole different level of creamy deliciousness.

The Grange is a traditional, organic farm cared for by the Turners for over four generations. Tucked away in the small Lincolnshire village of Little Bytham near Stamford, the farm is able to produce some very special crops from its small (by today’s standards) 100 hectares. It sits overlooking a broad valley formed by the once great Bytham River, whose legacy is its unique range of soils. John and Guy continue the same long tradition of truly mixed, rotational farming that has a passion for our produce.

Whole naked oats make such a good alternative to brown rice. In fact, they’re better. Creamy and nutty, they work brilliantly in salads or in place of rice with stews, curries and more. But Naked oats are not just delicious - naked oats are a disruptive technology. (Take that tech start-ups!)
