We are really lucky to have good local producers. Here are some local gems:
Carpenters Nursery and Farm Shop, Sandridge Road
This farm shop just gets better and better. The freshest, crispest veggies and fruit, with seasonal things grown on the site. Family run. They also have a good stock of locally produced delicious things, including Dizzy Bee, I am Cocoa and Campfire Gin.
Spelt and wheat is milled here and baked into fab bread in the barn next door. Buy it there at the weekends or at the local farmer’s markets. The Pudding Stop bake there too.
Organic veg, fruit and herbs grown near Highfields. Amazing prices. Drop in mid-week and they will pick what you want so you can’t get fresher than that. Good honey too when they have some to sell.
Hawkswick Fruit Farm, Harpenden Road
Pick your own strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants and gooseberries. Open June-Aug. Yum!
