WE WORK WITH NATURE TO HAVE SEASONAL PRODUCE AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR ON OUR 20 ACRES OF ORGANIC MARKET GARDEN.
We grow over 300 varieties of organic fruit, vegetables, salad leaves and herbs at Daylesford, including many unusual and heritage varieties.
Whenever we’re cooking, on the farm and in our cafés, we look first to the market garden for fresh, inspiring ingredients. You can see much of our fresh produce in our farmshops, in the delicious dishes in our cafés, takeaway sandwiches and salads.
We use as much of our own produce as we can in our award-winning ready-to-cook meals and soups, jams and chutneys. If you visit our farm and farmshop in Gloucestershire during the summer, you can enjoy a tour of our market garden with Jez, our Head Market Gardener and his team. Tours are every Friday from 25th July to the 5th September, 2 – 3pm. Just follow the signs from the main car park.
