Salad Leaves from Lane Cottage Produce

I August 2016 I started using the produce from Richard and Mandy Sidgwick of Lane Cottage produce near Ludlow, organically grown crops no pesticides and fertilizers, just organic compost. on their weekly delivery run they passed Albright Hussey and can I just say again...the these salad leaves, they are simply to die for, the taste of each leaf is just so pure, holds its own characteristic of strength and cleanliness that eating salad has a new meaning, earning its right to be a starter or main course, with some freshly baked crusty bread, some different non scented oils, balsamic, marldon seasalt flakes....So from August last year till the end of October 2016 I had been spoiled in abundance with their fine produce. I have been promising Mandy that I would come and visit their 'Market Garden' for a while now and with Christmas and New Year out of the way...Spring season is closing in on us new menu’s are compiled that day has come and is tomorrow...Their new season has begun and the first leaves are ready, I am excited like a little child going to a special place for the first time, story of my life....for me this is and always will be the best way of being involved and buying fresh local produce, spread the word, pass on their passion and pride of their produce, take that in turn to my kitchen team to creating foods of purity for the right reason....from farm to fork all the way....
