Taylor of St.James
Our buyer comes from a farming background and uses contacts built up over a number of years to ensure that we can source and supply home grown produce that we are proud of, from basic Cabbages and Carrots to the less well known varieties of Potatoes to mutli-coloured beetroots and unusual tomatoes.
Taylors are proud to be associated with specialist growers throughout the UK, we select farmers by their location and the products that they produce to give the best taste, yield and season length. For example, onions need high levels of lime, so Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire are the best areas for this. As Asparagus is a type of seaweed, it needs high calcium and salt levels so the South downs, Norfolk and the Thames Valley produce the optimum spears. Top Fruit needs potassium to produce large apples and pears, hence Kent and Somerset are the areas that produce the best award winning fruit. The soil in Scotland is very alkaline, which is exactly what Raspberries need.
We are always looking for different items that can give the “wow” factor, but if you have seen something on your travels, in a book or on a TV programme, let us know and we will find it for you.
