With the farm waterlogged and polytunnels being battered by the repeated high winds, we’re still out in all weathers harvesting veg, and the polytunnels are really helpful at this time of year, allowing us to get an early start on sowing tomatoes, aubergines and peppers as well as sheltering crops such as green sprouting broccoli and our mixed salad leaves. Call 01736 788454 to order your box.
