It makes sense for the planet that we work with local customers and so that is what we have always done. We have earned an excellent reputation for quality vegetables and herbs, grown to order with ecological methods (plus we source bio-degradable corn starch bags to wrap our produce. This keeps the veggies fresh and is a better choice for the planet!) All our customers have a commitment to sourcing their food locally and have a strong environmental ethos.
Fifteen Cornwall, Watergate Bay (4.3 miles) From their first year in 2006, we worked out a growing plan with the head chef. The relationship has grown over the years and, with Adam Banks their current Head chef, it’s great to be working with someone so full of inspiring and eco-logical ideas about food supply. With Jamie Oliver’s Italian cooking style, we grow a range of Mediterranean veg and herbs for them.
The Scarlet and Bedruthan Steps, Red Hotels, Mawgan Porth (10.5 miles). On our delivery route, just along the coast from Fifteen, both hotels are truly dedicated to Green Tourism and we are part of that deal. They love the mixed salads that we grow especially for them and keep us up to date with their changing needs.
Crossways, Newlyn East (0.3 miles) The owners have always been our staunch supporters and welcome our salad bags when they are in season. They’ve even been known to get orders for them!
Mr Fruity, Goonhavern Garden Centre (4.2 miles) Justin (AKA Mr Fruity) also has some enthusiastic local customers who buy our herbs and salads up when they are on the shelves.
Cornish Food Box Company (12.8 miles) When they can give us a nice big order, we venture down this way as we like to be part of the fine work this company is doing for Cornish Food. We tie it in with a trip to our packaging suppliers nearby, to make the most of the trip.
West Country Fruit Sales (19.9 miles) These distributors of local produce among other things, buy herbs from us and pick them up to distribute on their rounds, so although they are further away than our other customers, the food miles are not more!
WE DO TAKE ON NEW PRODUCE CUSTOMERS OCCASIONALLY BUT AS WE ARE A SMALL PRODUCER WE MAY ALREADY BE COMMITTED FOR THE SEASON. PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN WORKING WITH US IN THE LONGER TERM AND WE CAN LET YOU KNOW WHAT IS POSSIBLE.
