Labour-intensive to grow, asparagus are the young shoots of a cultivated lily plant. They’re considered to be one of the delicacies of the vegetable world, with a price tag to match, and have a distinct, intense savoury flavour. Sprue is the term for young, very slender asparagus. Asparagus has a nutritious punch, with high levels of vitamins A and C, potassium, iron and calcium.
Our asparagus comes from Johnny Cave, Hall Farm, West Rudham.

Our favourite summer fruits are now available to buy. Strawberries, raspberries and blackberries from a favourite supplier in Sharrington!
Strawberries are also great in a salad, or why not try them with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar reduction, and a few scoops of Lakenham Creamery vanilla ice cream. Just like the Italians have them! Yummy!
