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.

Last year (field scale chickpea production year 2) was a real struggle: drought through much of the season, intense heat in late May, then extraordinary rainfall in August. This year (chickpea year 3) hasn’t started much better to be honest: a cold start and prolonged wet conditions are not what chickpeas like.
