It takes around a month to grow before going into the soil. It then takes a further four to six weeks until the salad is ready to harvest.

Harvested when needed, washed, bagged, and ready to go straight into our Farm Shop.

Whether you pair it with something from our Butchers, Fishmongers, or Deli, our salad is the perfect fresh addition to any meal.
Why not mix some herbs or drizzle over our new Bread Dipper flavoured oils?
