Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
Summerhill has been very fortunate to have recently found L B Stewart & Son of Bromham. Not only does Paul Stewart’s business grow many vegetables on site in Bromham but anything they don’t grow themselves, is sourced from farms around Bedfordshire and the surrounding counties.
The Stewart’s own crops include corn on the cob, marrows, various beautiful lettuces and stick beans to name but a few – and these are picked just before they are delivered to the farm shop. The cucumbers come from Blunham, tomatoes from Sharnbrook, apples and pears from Bluntisham and broccoli from a little further away in Spalding, Lincolnshire.
The range, quality and value are all greatly improved by sourcing so locally.
