Artichokes back in 2022
When to pick: Our artichoke field has now closed and will open again in 2022.
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 grow globe artichokes, we recommend steaming them (similar to asparagus) for around 15 minutes. You then slowly peel back each individual leaf and dip it into melted butter (or sauce of your choice) and scrap the juicy flesh with your teeth. As you get closer to the heart you can at more of the leaf, after a few minutes of hard work you will reach the heart and you can eat all of this!
