We are in the early days of establishing a market garden, growing many types of fruits and veggies with a focus on salad crops. We grow organically although we are not currently certified. We are passionate about good local food and love to share this with people. We’re based in Ashleyhay, near Wirksworth (Derbyshire) at a challenging 650ft altitude.
Have a look at what we are doing now. If you’re interested in buying, helping or have any useful input, then please be in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
We are selling mixed salad bags at a few outlets in and around Wirksworth: Dip’s, the monthly farmers market and Matlock market. They are 100g bags retailing around the £2 mark (retailer’s discretion) they are a mix of
- Rocket (wild and cultivated varieties)
- Mizuna (Purple and green)
- Komatsuna (Japanese brassica leaf)
- Mixed lettuce
This is our first year of growing so we are trialling many different leaves and veg to see what works at our site. If there is something in particular you would like us to try, let us know and we’ll consider growing it.
As the summer grows longer we hope to have an abundance of tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, chillies, sweet peppers and more.
