March / April News
March’s weather dried out our fields enough to enable us to make a start on this year’s crops. We’ve been muck-spreading, ploughing, cultivating and planting. Early
potatoes are in the ground, as are a big percentage of our onion sets. We’ve also transplanted a small are of kale, the earliest we’ve done this, but the
popularity of this crop has seen the amount we grow increase massively over the last 10 years.
We’re only whispering the phrase ‘Hungry Gap’ at the moment, but it’s on its way! It's that time when our over-wintered and stored crops come to an end, but the new season's ones are not yet ready, but we’re looking forward to our first crops of the new season, salad leaves (sown a few weeks ago) and green garlic (planted in the Autumn).
We grow organic vegetables for our box scheme customers in East Kent (Canterbury, Ashford, Whitstable, Faversham, Folkestone, Wye & more) ; Farmer's Market customers in Wye, Whitstable & London and we also supply shops and home delivery/box schemes in London.
