Our Saffron and our Story
We are a small family business who have been growing Saffron in the heart of England since 2004. Through our passion and dedication we are restoring the lost art of Saffron growing back to England.
In the early 14th century, Saffron Walden in Essex emerged as England's main area for saffron growing and trading, and in keeping with tradition our main garden is based close to Saffron Walden in the Essex countryside.
Alongside our Essex gardens, we also have a garden in Devon, overlooking the picturesque river Exe.
