The British Asparagus season lasts for 8 weeks.
British Asparagus is packed with goodness and a rich source of Vitamin C to boost your immune system, and contains Vitamin K essential for healthy blood clotting. Asparagus also promotes healthy bacteria in the large intestine and is a mild diuretic - believed to help detoxify the body.
Asparagus can also cure hangovers and protect the liver against toxins.
At our farm here in Kingsley, we harvest our Asparagus spears every day through the season, with all our Asparagus crop available exclusively to our farm shop customers at Country Market.
Our home grown Asparagus is delicious served simply by boiling, steaming, grilling, roasting or on the BBQ. Or serve the tender tips raw in a seasonal summer salad.
