Hodmedod's beans

 

A small but growing independent business, Hodmedod’s, are one of three finalists for the Best Producer category of the 2017 BBC Food and Farming Awards, announced on the Food Programme.

The business was founded in 2012 to source and supply beans and other products from British farms. They are committed to providing quality organic food that’s more sustainably produced and all Hodmedod’s pulses and grains are British-grown.

Nick Saltmarsh, managing director, said: “It’s a testament to the many wonderful farmers and producers we work with – and to the potential of British farming to produce an ever wider variety of foods.”

Mark Lea, an OF&G licensee, grows superb organic peas for Hodmedod’s at his Green Acres farm in Essex. He has also produced some of the first organic naked barley while his son Edward lovingly tends some very special rare varieties of bean.
