Most of our fruit and veg are grown by Phil. Phil runs Moyns Park Organics on a big country estate on the Essex/Suffolk border. If you like our food, Phil deserves a good chunk of the credit, because as we all know, good food starts with good produce and good people. You can visit the site here.
Ben grows our vegetables at Crapes farm, just 5 miles west of Colchester. Although the farm is not certified organic, he practices permaculture principles and uses no synthetic fertilisers, pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. Crapes farm apples are also outstanding! You can visit the site here.
We wanted to make the best organic espresso we could. That’s why we chose Edward and James at Beanberry. Their knowledge and experience is off the charts, and after hours of hands on training from them, we think it comes through in the flavour of their java script espresso blend.
