Sweet, crisp, soil-grown cucumber – a fresh addition to anything from salad and tzatziki to gin and tonic.
Our cucumbers are grown naturally in the soil. Most commercially grown cucumbers get their food hydroponically, being drip-fed water and a computer-controlled solution of nutrients – just about as far from organic farming as it gets. We like to think you can tell the difference in the sweet, crisp taste.

How to prepare
A welcome, refreshing addition to healthy salads, or even a gin and tonic – it’s amazing how the fresh flavour comes through from a single slice. For tzatziki, mix a peeled, diced cucumber with Greek yogurt, a crushed garlic clove or two, shredded mint and salt and pepper. Lovely as a dip for pittas, or alongside lamb chops.
Delivered from our farm, so wash before cooking. Best eaten fresh but will keep in the fridge for a week or more.
All produce is sold as Class II.
