Asparagus now ready at Primrose Vale & Over Farm Market

British Asparagus in Gloucestershire

British asparagus has been hailed by leading chefs as being the best in the world and now it is now ready at Primrose Vale Farm Shop near Brockworth and at Over Farm Market near Gloucester. 

British asparagus is classed as a 'Superfood' bursting with nutrients and has been a delicacy throughout the ages. It's low in calories, contains no fat or cholesterol and is very low in sodium. It's a good source of potassium, dietary fibre, rutin and folic acid (so it’s good for expectant mums).

For the next eight weeks you can rest assured that your fresh asparagus will have no air miles attached to it, and that you'll be supporting local producers.

Seasonal fruit and vegetables are always on offer at Primrose Vale and Over Farm, as well as other local produce. At both farms you can also pick your own seasonal fruit, which always provides a great family trip out.
