Artichokes back at the end of July! Sign up to our newsletter for early offers and crop picking dates.
When to pick: From late May, with a second crop arriving in August.
How to pick: Bring your own secateurs from home or we can lend you some from the shop for a £2 refundable deposit. Just under the head, snip them off at an angle and pop into a bag – quick and easy!
Ready picked: If picking is not for you then we have a skilled team of professionals in the fields who pick our best every single day. You can find our ready-picked fruit & vegetables in the Farm Shop fridges. If you would like to order a large volume of fruit or vegetables for an event, we’ll be happy to help. Please contact us using our contact form or call the shop on 01865 358 309.
What we grow & how to cook: We recommend steaming our Globe artichokes for around 15 minutes. You then slowly peel back each individual leaf and dip into melted butter (or sauce of your choice) and scrape the juicy flesh with your teeth. As you get closer to the heart you can eat more of the leaf. After a few minutes of hard work you will reach the heart – the fleshiest and the best bit, in our opinion!
