OUR LEEKS

'10,000

TONNES'

Our main crop, we grow 1,000 acres of leeks, producing around 10,000 tonnes annually.

 

'Allium ampeloprasum var. Porrum' is a member of the Allium family which includes chives, garlic and onions.

 

Like the onion, the leek is a very versatile ingredient used in cooking many different dishes.

 

​The leek is one of the emblems of Wales, but grows very well in the various soil types found throughout East Anglia.​

 

Drilling starts during early Spring, and harvesting takes place from July through to the following May.​

 

Some of our most popular varieties are; Linkton, Longton, Lexton, Belton and Krypton.
