Our growing season starts with rhubarb and is soon followed by the asparagus in early April which we continue to cut until the longest day in June. The asparagus gives way to broad beans and courgettes followed by runner beans, marrows and squashes. Sunflowers and sweetcorn provide late summer pick your own crops. We grow all our own pumpkins for Halloween.
During the summer months we freeze large quantities of our summer fruits for sale through out the winter. Raspberries freeze especially well but you can still make jam from frozen strawberries.
We grow our own maincrop potatoes and favour the varieties Wilja and Desiree. The new potatoes we sell are a variety called Maris Bard and are grown locally by a farmer near Nuneaton.
Apples, pears and plums are all sourced locally from a farm near Daventry.
