The Dyas family have lived and farmed at Sevenscore since 1966 and is situated at the base of the Isle of Thanet in East Kent. Looking West across the marshes and fields of Kent lies the cathedral city of Canterbury while to the East is the sea at Pegwell Bay and the towns of Ramsgate and Broadstairs.
The farm has various soil types, from shallow soils over chalk on the top of Thanet, through deep brick earth to the silts and clays of the marshes next to the River Stour. They are therefore able to grow a variety of crops from combinable ones such as wheat, peas and linseed, to vegetables like onions, cauliflower, cabbage, purple sprouting broccoli and importantly asparagus.
The asparagus is cut by hand early each day to ensure it is fresh and at its best. It is quickly brought in from the fields to the cutting room and shop, where it is carefully washed, graded and prepared for sale. By preparing and chilling the asparagus quickly its quality and freshness is assured.
"We want you to be as passionate and as excited about our produce as we are"
