Oliver Kay Crop Report 02 2018

Oliver Kay Crop Report 02 2018 (February - March) 

Welcome to our February edition of 'The Crop Report' 2018. Full report available to view here


February features the day of love - Valentines, and the day before on the 13th, Shrove Tuesday, so chocolate and pancakes are on the mind! As we mentioned last month, the world of eggs has been unstable due to the Fipronil issues but our brilliant buyers (they’re good eggs!) have been working hard so we have some good news to avoid panic on the batter making front.

Yorkshire Rhubarb is now in full flow and proving as popular as ever. Grown in Wakefield by 6th generation farmer Jonathon Westwood, this beautifully coloured and fragranced product is a must at this time of year. We recently took a trip to see Jonathon’s latest crop and took in the calming surroundings of the dark Rhubarb sheds! Picked by candlelight – this beautiful pink vegetable (yes that’s right – vegetable!) gives the perfect colour topping for both pancakes and chocolate – or all 3 perhaps?!

In the same week it is also Chinese New Year, so in celebration of this, the Chinese Leaf is our Buyer, Aaron’s pick - currently in from Holland, it’s currently great in terms of both price and quality.
