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.

A few years ago we were looking for a sweetner for some granola recipes, something UK produced and minimally processed. When our apple syrup order from Liberty Fields arrived we knew we were onto something special - we quickly added them to our short list of brilliant Guest Producers
We've launched ten pulses and grains from British farms as part of Holland & Barrett's transformation of their food range, available in their stores across the UK. It's a fantastic opportunity to make British-grown fava beans, carlin peas and quinoa, along with other pulses and cereals, available more widely and to support more diverse farming.
Down a warren of country lanes, not far from the Tamar Valley in Cornwall, is Julie Bailey's orchard Lower Trelabe, where she grows historic local varieties of apple and makes her delicious Apple Natural apple shreds, traditional fruit leathers that contain only the natural plant sugars.
