Ripple Farm Organics - Market Dates & Latest News
March / April News
We’ve made a good start on our early field cultivations and plantings, with potatoes, onions and broad beans in the ground, as well as our earliest ever transplanting of kale. A bit more spring warmth is wanted now, so they all start to grow!
We still have squash and onions in store, as well as our recently harvested ‘Valor’ potatoes. In the fields we have over-wintered kales, spinach, chard and salad leaves, all of which will give us a final flush of growth before heading skyward in a quest to make seed. We also have PSB, leeks and the last of the cabbages, sprouts, parsnips, swede and beetroot. We have just started to harvest the wild garlic from Burscombe Cliff Organic Farm, and may have our own green garlic by the end of April. (Not a bad selection for UK veggies at this time of year sounds like I don’t have to mention the ‘Hungry Gap’ until next month!)
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.
