Welcome

Here you will be able to embark on a new way of eating, yep that’s right getting more veggies in and not any kind of veg but VEGANIC veg.

 

We are excited to share our produce with you and love to know that the community around us are enjoying the food that we grow. It truly is a family affair, we Robert and Michelle are often joined by our children in the field, we can’t keep them out its their best place to spend their summers.

 

We believe in good old fashioned customer service too, where the customer is always right. It is important to us that we offer a friendly, personal but professional service.

 

So from all of us at the artisan grower.

Happy Shopping…

p.s. our logo (on the right) is not a fork and spoon on a plate as its often been referred to as, its actually hand tools in a circle :0)

Veganic (viːˈɡænɪk)

Veganic is the practice that we have chosen to bring the best tasting veg to you. We do not use any kind of animal input such as manures, blood or bone meal or anything that comes from an animal. We also do our best to sow organic seed (where available). We do not use any sprays in our field either. Many organic regulatory bodies allow a certain amount and kind of spray, we choose not to use any, so we like to say that we are “better than organic”. Our own family eats from our fields too and we don’t want any toxic substances finding its way into our food. We choose to use green manures in the field such as certain cover crops and we till them in to maintain fertility of the soil.

“better than organic”

Microgreens

Here in the heart of rural Aberdeenshire Scotland, the artisan grower produces speciality produce known as microgreens. These are tiny power-packed vegetables and herbs that are harvested at the cotyledon stage of growth and sometimes with the first true leaves. Microgreens offer 40 x more nutrients than the mature plant and therefore very little is needed to deliver a super nutritious addition to your meal or smoothie. Microgreens are often used by Michelin-starred chefs to garnish a dish in a distinguished way.

 

Our microgreens are grown with NO pesticides, herbicides and animal inputs, making them even more appealing. We like to say “veganic” or “better than organic”

 

We offer microgreens all-year round and currently supply retail, chefs and wholesale.

We at the artisan grower do not put all of our eggs in one basket, so there should always be a good variety of produce available for you.
