YBF_Vegetable_Winner2014Award Winners!!

We’re proud to have won the YBF (Young British Foodies) 2014 Award for Vegetables. Judge Bruno Loubet said:

“I am very pleased that Sean O’Neill from the modern salad grower has won the vegetable category. His unique collection of a seemingly common ingredient – a bunch of leaves presented in a shot glass, masquerading as a lemonade – really blew the judges away. In a city overrun by trends and fads, both the winner, and the Young British Foodies Foundation have reminded us to put the ingredient back in the heart of the dish. I am very pleased to be associated with these awards truly represent the best of British innovation and entrepreneurship.”

The Modern Salad Grower is the work of Sean O’Neill and his team, who produce organic salad leaves, microleaves, microgreens, tiny vegetables, edible flowers, herbs and salad vegetables with love and care.

Have a look behind the scenes…

We also forage a wide range of wild plants from our own organic woodlands and hedgerows. Our plants are grown in homemade organic compost, fed on our own seaweed and nettle tea feeds then watered with pure Cornish spring water. Here in our little corner of Cornwall, our produce is grown organically and harvested at the optimum time of day for flavour and freshness.

Whilst upholding the values and many of the varieties of traditional growing, we are also pushing the frontiers of new plants and growing methods to constantly develop our range. After the success of our tiny vegetables and our forced luminance ranges  these develop further this year.
