Veggie of the Week: Rocket

This week, we are really excited to welcome back rocket to the boxes. These peppery greens bring a big burst of flavour to any plate, whether you’re adding them to a salad, adding a zing to sandwiches, or enjoying them as a fresh garnish, rocket adds that perfect punch.

We recommend using our rocket as a pesto, this recipe from The Cinnamon Jar is fab and gives you 25 ways you can use your pesto once it’s made. We would also highly recommend this recipe: Dukkah-spiced pork with lentil, beetroot, feta and rocket salad. We made a take on this over the weekend and it was GLORIOUS.

News from the Farm (On Tour)

We’ve been on the move, and it’s been a journey! Sam had a brilliant time at the ReGen Gathering in Jersey, where he had the chance to share insights and ideas with like-minded individuals from the food and farming community. This one-day event was a fantastic mix of panel discussions, workshops, and demonstrations focusing on innovative food and farming approaches.

We also had the pleasure of visiting Laines Organic Farm just outside of Brighton. These folks are doing some incredible work, supplying fresh produce to the likes of Riverford and other places along the south coast. It was an eye-opening experience and we came away inspired on how we can scale up and diversify our offerings in the coming years, all while continuing to nurture our small piece of land. We’re excited to share what we’ve learned with you and can’t wait to see where our farming journey takes us next!
