Spread over 5 acres of land, their process of growing and harvesting is truly spectacular! All the edible plants start off in the germination room, after all the seeds are sewn. The plants are then watered with fresh water straight from an underground bore (this water is single use), it is to prevent contamination and any bacteria that may be growing. The wastewater is then released into a nearby local river which doesn’t cause any damage to the environment.
Did you know? one germ could kill an entire crop of pea!
The germination room holds at 25’c, 365 days of the year and the plants are typically in here for 7 days before moving into the greenhouses. The germination room is heated by a biomass boiler, to be as environmentally friendly as possible. This makes the growing process as sustainable as possible and has the least damage feasible to the environment and the planet.
