Lucknam renovated the old Vinery in 2012, a historic greenhouse, where we have grown an eclectic range of micro salads and herbs. The newly built 8 large raised beds, filled with over 120 tons of top soil, now has over 30 varieties of produce, ranging from alpine strawberries, rhubarb through to runner and broad beans; from edible flowers to root and brassica crops.
Seasonal produce from the kitchen garden is shown regularly to Hywel so the kitchen is updated as to what is available. This then enables the Kitchen to have produce when it is optimum size, freshness is never an issue as from garden to kitchen is just minutes away. Garden produce is increasingly picked last minute and used for specific menus; the produce is also used in our Cookery School.
