During the summer months we get in touch with Stephen who has been commercially growing fruit since 1990 and on a smaller scale in the years previous. The business has boomed over the years due to its amazing premium berries! Stephen and his employees “are passionate about delivering the highest quality products, with particular emphasis on flavour, with a lot of it coming from (Stephens) fertigation regime”. Being only a stones throw from the Cambridgeshire border we grab the opportunities to source his berries when possible!
Potatoes come in a multitude of shapes, sizes, colours and textures with thousands of varieties worldwide so its vital we source the best ones for you! We source our high quality potatoes from Neil who runs a specialist potato company that “knows the importance of carefully selecting only the very best potato varieties”. They’re located on the Norfolk/Suffolk border with a dedicated team who run the largest lowland farm in the UK and produce potatoes all year round! The business was established in 2009 with a simple aim of wanting their customers to love their potatoes as much as they do and promise to “go to great lengths to ensure that our crops are nurtured, harvested, handled and packed with the utmost care.’
Unfortunately the British climate doesn’t accommodate us to have the opportunity to grow bananas. But we source ours from the biggest banana importer who is the biggest banana expert with over 100 years in the business.
