Our latest news



The Barba di frate grown by Wye Valley Salads is wonderful. For many years I grew my own until I managed to persuade someone in London to import it from Italy for me. Now I can buy from Amanda freshly picked. It’s not worth growing your own - hers gets delivered cleaned and perfect! Can’t ask for better.

Wye Valley Barba di frate is a delicious, versatile and unusual seasonal salad/vegetable ingredient grown here in Herefordshire with Amanda’s tender care.
