T H Brown and Son source seasonal produce from Kent
With an ever increasing awareness on seasonality, fresh local produce and food miles, we aim to have the broadest selection of farm grown produce available. Growers reports, daily farm updates mean we can offer the freshest offerings to our customers as soon as they are ready for harvesting.
Wherever possible we promote and offer seasonal British fruit and vegetables. Much of this is grown in Kent by farmers and producers who we have had relationships with for three generations. Over the years we have built up a large network of growers, some of which grow especially for our specifications. Award winning soft fruit, magnificent forced and field rhubarb, artichokes and squashes are highlights.
