Cornish Asparagus season off to a good start.

Cornish Asparagus Cornish Asparagus and English Asparagus season begins at the start in the spring. We are excited to announce that we have both English and Cornish asparagus available. We currently have in our fridges some English asparagus from Wye Valley Produce. Grown in the Wye Valley near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire by fourth generation farmers, the Chinn family; the land is ideally situated to produce some of the best, and earliest produce in the UK. The south- facing slopes of the Wye Valley which capture the earliest spring sunlight coupled with the light and sandy soil creates a unique micro-climate perfect for growing asparagus along with other top quality produce such as Rhubarb and Blueberries. The Wye Valley Asparagus is hand- harvested and within the hour is hydro-cooled to 2⁰C to retain ultimate flavour and freshness. The first supply of Cornish Asparagus arrived this morning from Splattenridden Farm, Lelant Downs and is available in rolls of 250gm. We are also expecting to see Cornish Asparagus from Tregassow Farm very soon. Tregassow Farm produces one of the most sought after crops of Cornish Asparagus.
