Boddington's Berries, Cornwall

Boddington's Berries is a family-run business that has been growing and producing fresh produce for over 75 years. They began in the 1940s, after the Second World War when the Boddington family started growing fresh produce and flowers in the quaint fishing village of Mevagissey, Cornwall. Jams and spread can be found here

The original site consisted of 2 acres of apples, but this soon grew to 3 acres to include flowers, vegetables, and Royal Sovereign strawberries. Back then, strawberries only had a two-week season! During the late 1960s, the crops started to whittle down, and the decision was made to specialize in one crop - strawberries. Since then, the Boddington family has become true strawberry specialists, trialling many new varieties and growing systems to produce the cream of Cornish strawberries today.

In 2001, they began making a high fruit-content Strawberry Conserve using the wonky fruit the supermarkets would not take: fruits that were too small, too large, the wrong colour, blemished, or simply the variety delisted. The response was phenomenal, and over the last 22 years, the sales of conserve have taken over that of fresh fruit. This is a third generation family business run by Phil and Louise Boddington.

The Bold Bean Team together: Ed Whelpton and Amelia Christie-Miller, Hannah, Rosa, Lucy, Martha,

Amelia started her life hating beans. She thought they were dull and tasteless. But one fateful hangover in Spain, looking in an empty fridge for ANYTHING to eat, forced her hand. A jar of heirloom butter beans was all she had so she spooned one straight from the jar. Her opinion changed on the spot.

Bold Bean Co beans are chosen for flavour over yield.

No additives or preservatives. All the team at Bold Bean add is a pinch of salt, to enhance the beans' natural flavour, then pour them into glass jars along with their broth.

They source the tastiest bean varieties, cook them low and slow and season properly throughout the cooking process like real chefs do!

We would thoroughly recommend this recipe  or this one

Botivo made in Herefordshire has been voted one of the top non alcoholic drinks by the Financial Times 

One bottle of Botivo, Herefordshire

Botivo is a small batch, aperitif inspired drink with bittersweet, herbal and citrus notes, made by co-founder Sam in Hertfordshire. Loved by sommeliers, chefs and food critics for its unique taste profile, it’s deeply refreshing with a lasting backbone not usually found in non alcoholic drinks. Serve with soda / sparkling water and a wedge of orange over ice (or it’s also great with tonic).

 

0% ABV

No flavourings or preservatives

2 year natural shelf life (1 year once open)

20 servings per bottle

Packed with antioxidants

No need to keep in the fridge once open

Botivo is to be savoured with good food and friends, or to unwind in what we call ‘the yellow hour’, the most important moment of the day when you clock out and ease into your evening. Botivo also adds depth to many cocktails, and tastes glorious in other simple serves.
