Earliest asparagus for years

Posted in General

Phew!  We are just gathering breath after a very hectic start to the asparagus season.  Not only did it arrive early – the first pick for the shop was on the 6 April! – when it did come, there was no stopping it!  No two seasons are ever the same.  Last year it was late and slow to get going, this year was quite different!  Asparagus thrives when the sun is shining on it, and with the gorgeous weather that we have had, it was growing as fast as we could pick it!  That meant all hands were called on to help, so every member of the family picked and graded… from the very young (8 years of age) to the not so young (won’t disclose ages here!).  It is a fabulous crop and it is so nice to see our asparagus customers again!  People travel from far and wide for our asparagus, who appreciate that it is with us for such a short season: typically May and June.  Come and enjoy the first tastes of summer!

Royal Wedding celebrations

Posted in General

The sun is out again and the bunting is up!  We are all ready to celebrate the Royal Wedding this week-end by serving our own Great British Sunday Roast, now with an optional Hungersheath asparagus starter, or you may just fancy a typically English cream tea, served with our own Hungersheath home-made strawberry jam!

The “King” is on his way………

Good news!!!!!  After the first sight of the swallows at the start of last week and all the unseasonably warm weather, the asparagus is just starting to poke through!   This is still very early and we are not picking great quantities yet, but you may be lucky enough to get your hands on some, if you call in.
