Due to the popularity that our syrup range has gained in some commercial sectors, and the hunger for fresh English wild-foraged produce from a selection of clients, it was decided in July 2015 to expand into the supply of fresh & dried English wild-foraged herbs, berries, fruits, nuts & botanical produce. In the short time this service has been launched, we have picked a vast variety of products for clients in: Brewery, Distillery, Baking, Animal Feed, pet food & herbalist/pharmaceutical sectors.
All produce is sustainable & wild foraged from local organic private farmland & nature reserves.
