Glenview is a market garden near New Byth in Aberdeenshire producing homegrown, seasonal vegetables at competitive prices for our local community.
We participate in the Farmers' Markets at Huntly and make weekly deliveries of seasonal vegetables to homes and businesses in our local area.
Our polytunnels allow us to grow vegetables which are slightly tender and extend the season to include a range of greens and salads through most of the year.
Direct to Your Door
An orchard of apples, plums, and pears and soft fruits planted in 2008 will supplement our range of produce.
Surpluses are turned into delicious seasonal pickles, preserves and chutneys.
Meet us at the Farmers' Markets at Huntly which we regularly attend, or give us a ring to come and see the garden and our approach to growing.
We are looking to set-up a long-term relationship with those seeking seasonal produce. If you are interested in a weekly delivery of a small, medium or large 'box' of vegetables, or would like your own selection of vegetables delivered to order, please give us a call. We will be happy to show you around the garden so you can see our approach to growing.
The weather is behaving rather well - we like it! We've had some of the wind and some of the rain that spring usually brings, but nothing really to complain about, and so we head into the growing season.
The past week has pretty much seen the end of last year's crops and we're busy sowing seeds for the new season. The greenhouse is chock-a-block with seed trays. We must reorganize and move things out to harden off so that we can continue with even more. Lots has been done, but still more to do.
The poly tunnels are full of early, leafy greens, which will soon make way for beans, cucumbers, squash and tomatoes. Some early potatoes, tender carrots and beetroot have started to grow in the tunnels, but won't be ready until next month. It is all rather exciting.
Outside, the early brassicas are about ready to plant out, and the onions, potatoes, broad beans and Jerusalem artichokes are all growing away. The garlic is looking good as well. We still have some clearing of beds to take care of, and I'm sure the weeds will be back, but we're not worried by them just yet.
Our next farmers' market is Saturday, 6 May, 9-1 in the square in Huntly. We make a weekly delivery of veg to customers within the MacDuff/Banff/King Edward/Turriff area, although being the 'hungry gap' when not too much is available, it would be wise to wait for June to start a delivery, but let us hear from you by email or phone if you're interested.
