Simon Weir, of Turfcroft Farm, grows most of our herbs, in a small farm in the New Forest. He has been growing herbs for nearly 30 years now, and has always shied away from using chemicals and pesticides. However, since there was little interest in organic herbs until recently, it was only a few years ago that he applied for organic certification; he just sold his herbs as conventional produce.
Bay leaves are great for seasoning meat and fish dishes but are mostly used in stews and soups. They should be stored in a cool dry place. Although they are suitable for home freezing, you should take care when defrosting as you need to ensure the leaves are dry before use.
