Our Growers | Nurtured in Norfolk
Hi and welcome to our fresh produce range. We work closely with our farmers and growers to source as much as we can locally. In this regular blog series we take a closer look at our growers and the fantastic people who make it all possible. Today we are delighted to highlight Nurtured in Norfolk and introduce Isobel Dickson.
‘’ My favourite part of the job is definitely speaking to our customers. I enjoy seeing people use our produce and how they inspire each other. I run the Instagram page for Nurtured in Norfolk and I love to see all the wonderful cakes, drinks, appetisers and mains people tag us in. ‘’
Nurtured in Norfolk grow and supply a range of top-quality produce including Micro Cress, Edible Flowers, Baby and Micro Vegetables, Sea Vegetables and Edible Leaves. All together there are over 280 different edibles in their full range.
‘’ Cucamelons and Micro Amaranth would be my top picks when it comes to choosing a favourite from our range. Cucamelons are cute small fruits that taste of cucumber and lime. I love the Micro Amaranth for its beautiful red and purple colours. ‘’
All of the products from Nurtured in Norfolk are grown on a natural soil base, benefiting from nutrients that are present throughout the growing stages. Biological controls are used throughout the growing process to keep the crops clean and pest free.
‘’ The most positive experience I can take from Covid 19 is seeing how positive everyone has been. It is so wonderful to see everyone at Nurtured in Norfolk coming together and really putting their all into the business. We like WestCountry for lots of reasons but the staff are always so chirpy, it really makes a difference. ‘’
