Salad Show Stoppers

We had an unusually long and cold winter in Cornwall this year. That meant that like other local market gardeners, we were late to be able to grow our seasonal, vegetable produce. Being certified Organic, also means our growing season is a little slower, as we do not use chemical fertilisers or pesticides.

However, slow grown tastes all the better in our opinion. By not rushing the natural process, all our produce is full of flavour and tastes delicious!

We are still facing challenges, we haven’t had rain for months, but we fight on raising those little seeds and sproutlings to fruition!

The good news is now we are seeing the fruits of our labour. In the shop we now have our Organic lettuce, rainbow chard, spinach, potatoes, cucumbers, french beans, red and white onions.

Not far off are our delicious tomatoes, courgette, runner beans and broad beans.

Our farmhouse kitchen produce has also been flying out of the shop.

Scrumptious jams, scones and traditional Cornish baked goods are always popular with our lovely customers.

We are BEElievers!

Bees are of utmost importance to us at Gluvian. They are part of the indigenous ecosystem and are vital to the pollination of our plants and trees. Being an Organic farm, we don’t use pesticides, so our wildflowers, wild spaces, orchard and hedgerows are abundant with native species which the busy bees thrive in and it’s a healthy habitat for them!

Despite the major insecticide companies insisting that the chemicals they produce are ‘safe’, independent scrutiny from major field trials, have produced reports which are conclusive that the use of pesticides damage the survival of bee colonies, accounting in part for their decline. See here for a recent article from the Guardian.

So what can you do to help? The Soil Association has launched it’s summer campaign #BeeOrganic which we have been following closely and updating social media with images of our little friends on the farm. It doesn’t take a lot to plant bee friendly species in a window box or garden and feel good about being part of their recovery!
