To celebrate British Tomato Fortnight (May 24th – June 6th 2021) say hello to our amazing Isle of Wight growers, The Tomato Stall.
This summer the tomatoes in your box are proudly British and grown for us by The Tomato Stall, our sustainable tomato experts. Here are three reasons we couldn’t resist popping them in your recipes.
1. They’re vine artists
It takes a lot of work to produce great-tasting tomatoes. Good thing the experts at, The Tomato Stall, have had the perfect recipe since 2007. Based on the Isle of Wight – which gets more sunshine than anywhere else in the UK – they grow their bounty on rich, fertile Arreton soil using a biodegradable growing system.
2. Our planet is a priority
Just like Mindful Chef, The Tomato Stall is passionate about the planet. They compost plant waste to enrich their soils, and support a natural ecosystem in glasshouses to control pests and diseases. The Tomato Stall even harvests rainwater from glasshouse roofs to irrigate their plants.
3. The tomatoes are amazing!
The most important thing? The Tomato Stall’s tomatoes are incredible. They grow over 200 varieties each year, rigorously taste-testing them to make sure you only get the most juicy and delicious. Don’t just take our word for it – give them a try in your box and taste for yourself.
