About P’s

Hi, I’m Adam and welcome to P’s Market Garden; we are a family run business in the heart of the Norfolk countryside.

 

The difficult time of the first lockdown in 2020 gave us time to look at what we enjoyed in life and so we decided to take the plunge and P’s Market Garden was born. Thanks to a local farmer we were able to rent a field just outside the village of Necton where we live.

 

Our mission is to grow fresh, nutritious vegetables, bringing local produce to families and businesses whilst reducing the carbon footprint of the food journey from our field to your fork.

 

Living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle is important to our family. We have been growing vegetables for over 15 years and believe that producing seasonal food is not only best for the future of our planet; it is better for our wellbeing.

 

From the crunchiest summer salads to warming winter stews, our locally grown seasonal veggies, salad greens and herbs are the perfect ingredients.

Sustainability and our environment

Here at P’s Market Garden we believe in a cleaner better planet with small changes made by us all making a big difference to the world we live in.

 

We aim to operate the market garden in a sustainable way, using the no dig method which farms in a regenerative way by giving more back to the soil and environment.

 

The no dig approach means that the soil is not disturbed and its success is to do with not exposing the soil ecosystem to the air which kills the organisms. The soil is full of life and has about 50 billion microbes in a tablespoon of soil. When left undisturbed these beneficial organisms and microbes help plants to find nutrients and moisture. By keeping the nutrients in the soil there is no need for pesticides or chemicals; we use only natural matter, soil and compost to feed the beds.

 

Not disturbing the soil also means carbon is retained in the ground and not released back into the atmosphere and as a result our impact on global warming is reduced if only in a small way.

 

People want to understand more about where their food comes from. By growing and selling locally and delivering once a week in an electric vehicle, the CO2 emissions for the food we produce for you is minimal.

 

We use paper bags where we can although our salad leaves are best kept in our polythene bag. The bag is recycled polythene which can be recycled again at your local supermarket. Our punnets can be reused over and over or you can tear them up and put them on your compost heap or in your recycling bin and it will go round in the recycling journey again!
