Asparagus at Groombridge Farm Shop

Asparagus is in season for just 7-8 weeks a year.

Left to grow naturally in the spring sunshine gives the “green gold” its delicate flavour and soft texture.

The spears are cut early every day by hand, cooled and bundled for sale in the shop in the afternoon. Spears can grow 10cm on a hot day.

The “crowns” will produce for 7-8 years after spring planting and we wait for two years before taking a crop.

The farm shop blog shows fresh crowns being planted.
