Simon Weir, of Turfcroft Herbs, 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.
During the winter season, we source some of our herbs from a family-run farm set up by Francesco Barduca in 1977 on the outskirts of Borgoricco in Italy. Francesco Barduca has always combined a love for the soil with an awareness of the need for environmental protection.
Thyme is a very tasty companion for lemon, garlic, and basil, and also makes an attractive salad garnish. Use a little chopped thyme to enhance the flavour of tomatoes, onions, carrots, cucumbers, aubergine, parsnips, leeks, spinach, corn, peas, cheese, or eggs. Keep wrapped up in a plastic bag, in your fridge. This will retain moisture and keep it fresh for you.
