Wealmoor & our partners have been growing Asparagus for over 20 years on land, carefully selected to produce high quality and flavorsome asparagus. It's a labour of love & patience as it takes 3 years from planting to harvesting the first spears. The asparagus is very carefully nurtured and each spear is hand cut. Rapid cooling ensures a very good shelf-life.
