Summer is here and at last some of our seasonal vegetables grown here on Blagdon Farm are ready to harvest. First out of the gate, we have freshly picked Dinosaur Kale (Cavolo Nero) and Cos Lettuce.
Dinosaur Kale is popular, not just because of its impressive nutritional amounts of vitamins and fibre, but because it's an incredibly versatile leafy green. It's delicious cooked or raw, in soups and salads, and can even be baked until crispy for kale chips!
Cos Lettuce is high in nutrients and low in calories and is really versatile for summer and keeps well in the fridge.
All of our Blagdon vegetables are grown naturally with a small amount of farm yard fertiliser to help them on their way. They grow in the fields on Blagdon farm and are harvested by Emma, then delivered straight to the shop in reusable trays.
