Birchden Asparagus - 01892 862940 - Stephen Barnes
Asparagus is in season from late April until 21st June (midsummers day), and we will try to be at as many markets as possible in that window (weather permitting). Asparagus likes warm, dry weather and growth slows down dramatically in the cold and wet, so fingers crossed.
Birchden Farm is in Groombridge, and asparagus is the main crop grown there, currently about 25 acres. We aim to retail as much as possible ourselves, at Farmers’ Markets, our own asparagus farm shop, and roadside stalls on the A25. We like to have contact with our customers, and to keep it local

Little Omenden Farm Nursery - 01233 770235 or 07711 412973 - David and Elizabeth Harrison
Our blog: http://littleomendenfarm.blogspot.com/
We are a small family run nursery specializing in scented and aromatic plants, based on our farm in Smarden. All our plants are propagated by us, or are grown from seed. We do not use heat in our polytunnel to lessen our
impact on the environment, so the plants will not be as early as those found in the local garden centre, but hopefully more interesting. We use only peat-free organic compost, and biological and cultural methods to control pests and diseases.
The nursery complements the conservation based farming that we practice on the rest of the farm.
