What's In Season When

What's In Season When


Eating British fruits and vegetables in season is good for you. Foods in season contain the nutrients, minerals and trace elements that our bodies need at particular times of the year. British food travels less far from farm to shop so regardless of how carbon footprints are calculated it self-evidently has a lower carbon footprint.

Choosing British means supporting British farmers whose work helps to keep the British countryside the way we want it to look!
