Is everything grown by Hexhamshire Organics?
Our aim is to grow and rear the vast majority of produce ourselves. We have two fields where we grow vegetables, one field where we have an eighty tree orchard and one field where we have our herd of pedigree Tamworth pigs. We also have 50 chickens who produce fantastic eggs. In one of our fields we have 10 polytunnels which gives us 1/4 acre of covered cropping – probably the biggest area of covered cropping of organic vegetables in the region. This allows us to grow crops 12 months of the year. So at this time of the year we can produce seasonal crops such as salad leaves, celery, salad onions, cabbages and many more. However, even with this amount of covered cropping it is impossible for us, at this time of year, to produce all the fruit and vegetables ourselves, therefore we do buy in some fruit and vegetables such as bananas and tomatoes. Everything we buy in is certified organic.
Is everything Organic?
We have been certified organic by the Soil Association since 2013. Everything included in your bag is certified organic
