Wye Valley Blueberries

When you buy Wye Valley, you know you are getting a quality product and these Blueberries are no exception. Packed with flavour, they are excellent quality and a really good size.

The Chinn Family have been farming at Cobrey Farms in the Wye Valley, Herefordshire since 1925, and Wye Valley is the brand they reserve for their very finest produce.

They have been growing their blueberries since 2009 and by managing a variety of plants the season now runs for five months, from June to October.
The light, sandy soil and south-facing slopes on the farm capture the earliest spring sunlight and create a microclimate that produces some of the earliest harvests in Britain.

What is more, the growers have recently been given a conservation award for their rainwater harvesting initiative. Polytunnels over the blueberry fields collect more rainwater than the farmers use to grow them!

High quality technology and packing techniques ensure the blueberries keep cool and fresh, guaranteeing the best taste and texture.

Fresh Guernsey Herbs

A pioneering and family run company, Fresh Guernsey Herbs are growers of a vast range of magnificent herbs and edible flowers.

Over the last 20 years Fresh Guernsey Herbs have worked tirelessly towards the ready availability of a large selection of herbs; once upon a time demand for them was sporadic but today they are a prime ingredient, commonplace in recipes and a staple in British kitchens.

To ensure high quality the produce is handled only once, cut straight into punnets, chilled and dispatched in just a matter of hours, with an average of two days from picking to delivery.

Italian Leafy Lemons

Our Italian Leafy Lemons from the Amalfi coast of Italy have a unique flavour and intense aroma. Usually handpicked and packed straight into distinctive crates with their leaves and flowers, without any of the washing and waxing that most lemons undergo, their skin is thick and rough, and because it is unwaxed, you can make the most of their wonderfully tasty zest.

In fact the pith is just as palatable as the juice within, meaning that along with the zest, you can truly use the whole of the fruit.

The bright lime-coloured leaves and stalks cling to the vibrant yellow skin offering a passport of freshness that enhances the fruit’s natural deliciousness.

Available almost all year round, they are the only way to make true cloudy homemade lemonade, ice cold, zingy limoncello or a sharp lemon tart, avoiding the bitterness associated with waxed citrus.
