The Modern Salad Grower is the work of Sean O’Neill and his team. Sean has been growing organic salads for fifteen years, working at Keveral Farm and co founding Buttervilla Growers,Keveral Community of Growers and now the Modern salad grower.
At the Modern Salad Grower we produce salad leaves, micro leaves, microgreens, edible flowers, herbs and salad vegetables with love and care. 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.
