The Green Green Garden

Here at our premises, we have a spectacular garden behind our working factory, which is part of the Somerset Wildlife Trust. The organisation have been protecting land in Somerset for around 50 years and now manage 72 nature reserves in the South West area.

The Clifton garden is home to many weird and wonderful creatures and includes a ‘bug hotel’, designed as a bespoke area for insects to make their home and breed.

Bee hives are placed near the back of the garden; these bees are responsible for producing honey which we use in our development kitchen when we have guests here to cook sous vide.

We grow an extensive range of fruits and vegetables, from green beans, onions, rhubarb and peas, to orchards of apples, pears and plums. The garden also includes many vibrant flowers, two ponds full of fish and currently home to a number of frogs.

The garden we have is very sustainable and we are conscious of the natural environment, ensuring wildlife can come and go and the plant variation is extensive.

If you would like to come down and have a play in our demo kitchen in the months ahead, we can firstly show you how the water baths are manufactured; perhaps pick some fresh vegetables and herbs from our garden and then cook sous vide to finish the day off nicely. Call us on 01934 626691 to organise.
