Shopping fresh and seasonal (with minimal packaging) has never been more important. Yes, there’s things we all want from further afield – which Watts Farms can provide too – but wouldn’t you like the peace of mind to know that the fruit and veg in your grocery order came from a local Kent farm?

And you’ll be ever so thankful they are. Here’s everything you need to know about their fresh, tasty produce and how you can claim your 15% OFF.

WHO?

Watts Farms in Ayelsford have been farming in the county for over 70 years, and know everything there is to know about top quality foods. They have made their name supplying Michelin-starred restaurants and high-end clients with the best Kentish produce. With the advent of lockdown in March, the farm turned to the home shopping market.

Creating the new home shopping delivery service in Kent and East Sussex became a personal mission for director Ed Gray, he says: ‘We created a fresh website that was easy for everyone to use, and utilised our fleet of experienced and friendly delivery drivers to produce a service that we are really proud of. We update the produce constantly with new lines and partnerships. It’s been wonderful to be able to share the same foods with the public that we share with our 5-star restaurant clients in London such as The Mandarin Oriental, The Dorchester and The Four Seasons.’

WHAT CAN I GET?

Pretty much everything you’d get in your normal food shop. With Watts Farms you have the peace of mind that you’re getting the best fresh vegetables herbs and fruits, as well as high quality meats, fresh fish, dairy, fresh bread, delicious desserts and speciality alcohol from selected suppliers. This high quality has ensured that Watts Farms has a dedicated customer base who enjoy sampling their ‘Watts In Season’ weekly offers.

Currently in season from Kentish field is kale (nero), spinach, baby leaves, baby sorrell, fresh basil, raspberries, cavalo nero, kefir lime leaves, lettuces, strawberries, blackberries, Yukon gold potatoes and Kentish cobnuts. There’s even Kent cheeses and Kent dairy supplying the milks, eggs and dairy.

FIELD TO FORK
