|Back in 2012 when we founded Hodmedod it was nigh on impossible to reliably find British-grown pulses in the shops – and the range was tiny.|
It’s been a real pleasure working with everyone who has helped us to achieve this – farmers, retailers and everyone who has bought our peas and beans and convinced us that we’re not completely crazy to be doing this!
(And there’s lots more to come in 2015 – we can’t wait.)

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.
