Our vegetables are the next best thing to growing your own! Cultivated without pesticides and manufactured fertilizers, but with the benefit of copious quantities of horse muck and green manures. They really do taste better. Nothing is forced, nothing is hurried. They have time to absorb flavour and micro nutrients, making them taste so much better and we believe, are so much healthier for you too.
Most of our varieties are old fashioned ones proven over many years. Our carrots are “chantenay”( a very old French variety,) Charlotte and Desiree potatoes, Evesham sprouts, Sturon onions and January King cabbage. Our tomatoes are heritage varieties,like Black Krim and Courstralee, with an intense flavour that will take you back to those tomatoes in your Grandad’s greenhouse.
We like to try new things too !
We have recently grown Crosnes and Agretti and this year our new favourite Kalettes.
If you were to take a look at the growing area, you would see Statice, Ammi Majus, flowering parsley and Phacelia, in amongst the vegetables. Companion planting in this way attracts beneficial insects such as parasitic wasps and bees which in turn help us with pest control.
We are happy to sell from the farm on Fridays , and have a stall in South Molton pannier market on Thursday 0800 to 1400.
We also sell produce through Orchards farm shop at St Johns garden centre in Barnstaple.
Vegetable boxes by arrangement.
If you have any questions or enquiries please do not hesitate to get in touch!
They are always available in South Molton pannier market on a Thursday.
