Best in Season – British Baby Spinach is here!

May 2, 2017

 

We have some very exciting news. The UK spinach harvest has officially started!

At F&N we always strive to provide you with the best and freshest little leaves possible, no matter the time of year. However, we are very glad to finally be able to offer you baby spinach that is not only delicious and fresh but also locally sourced!

 

Have a look at these pictures taken on the South Coast Farm (Sussex), run by one of our growers, Alex Duncan.

Holidays with fresh & naked

November 27, 2015

Last weekend we had our first sharp frost in Cambridgeshire, so a bit cold here in the office, not that it affects our little leaves who have moved south for the winter, to be grown by our farmers in Spain and Italy through the winter months.

We have some great promotions with Tesco and Ocado currently running so keep eating your greens even if you do fancy a pie and chips!

On black Friday last year people went crazy for nutribullets… and this year we have had more questions than ever about recipes for blending our super baby spinach.

Check out this recipe from our friends at The Chia Co. Still one of our favourites…..

Stay safe and healthy through the holiday season and we will post again before Christmas.

Remember Remember the 5th of November

November 2, 2015

 

As we move into November it’s starting to get a bit dark and cold at night, but during the days we are still seeing warmer than average days.

Our Little Leaf harvest in the UK is all now complete and we won’t start harvesting on the UK farms until May next year.

We have moved our growing down to our farms in the South of Spain and Italy, while or Lambs Lettuce continues to come from the warmer climes of the South of France

If you are out and about for Fireworks, why not try traditional Hot Dogs, finessed off with beetroot and F&N Lambs Lettuce – Recipe courtesy of our friends at Love Beetroot
