Growfair Produce: Asparagus, Potatoes

Brothers Mark and Edward Rowe are 3rd generation farmers and have expanded their business operations substantially over the past 15 years. Complimenting different sides of the business means they work well together as a team- although they do have their moments!

Being highly accomplished and experienced potato growers, the Rowe brothers Have moved into growing asparagus as a crop in 2006, ideally suited to the Cornish climate, they grow varieties such as ‘backlim’ and ‘gijnlim’ on 80 acres of sloping land just outside Helston.

The Rowe brothers supply Growfair asparagus in 200g bundles, 15 per box.

The most simple and best way to cook asparagus is chargrilled with olive oil and butter. Serve with sea salt, cracked black pepper and sheared parmesan!”

We at Growfair look forward to extending our business relationship with Mark & Edward Rowe with potatoes in 2009.
