Fresh Veg On St. Dogmaels Rd

Cymraeg

We are producing a range of seasonal crops and keen to promote the produce and cuisine of West Wales. Our crops include Spring Greens, Pak Choi, Spinach, Broccoli, Salad Leaves, Beans, Leeks, Caulis, Fennel, Courgettes, Lettuce, Squashes, Cucumbers and Herbs supported by roots and fruit from other regional growers. Direct selling to the public provides very competitive prices as well as maximum freshness and taste.

We see Glebelands as part of quality regional food provision in the area contrasting the recently announced Tesco expansion and Sainsbury arrival. Both provide only nominal regional sourcing and continue to buy and process nearly all their veg outside Wales. A number of initiatives around Cardigan such as 4CG (Cymdeithas Cynnal a Cefnogi Cefn Gwlad), St Dogmaels Farmers Market, the veg stalls at Blaenfoss and Ferwig, and Trem's Nursery, all provide opportunities to keep cash in the local economy to everybody's benefit.

Continuing fuel price rises mean crops such as Kenyan Green Beans and Spanish Icebergs become less sustainable and cost effective. West Wales has a wide climatic range and more potential than most regions to increase production.

We produce to Soil Association standards and aim to leave our soil deeper and richer than when we arrived, a good measure of any production system. Our soil is ultimately powered by the sun and composted waste, via nitrogen fixing plants such as Clover and Vetch. Biologically active, organically managed soil may provide more of a national asset than retail "parks".

Opening Hours:
Thursday 10am - 5.30pm
