Our growing year

The plants we sell are all grown on our farm and we employ a local workforce throughout the year. There is planting in the spring, hoeing and weeding in the summer, and then lifting, sorting, grading and packing throughout the winter and into the spring. Meanwhile, the farm office keeps two people busy throughout the winter months, keeping track of orders and dealing with customers, and then updating the website and leaflets and catching up with the paperwork through the summer.

The image below shows what happens throughout the year.
