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.
Well, we've drifted rather benighly into March. We do seem blessed with slightly better weather than the rest of Scotland, so we shouldn't complain, but it does feel cold in that wind! Maybe I'm just outside in it more.
The greenhouse is full of leek seedlings in pots, lettuce and other greens, transplanted early broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower, and tomato seedlings almost ready for transplanting. We have had to heat the greenhouse a bit more this year than last, but it all looks promising. The broad beans are hardening off in the potting shed, just about ready to go out into the ground.
Outside is still very wet, but we have been topping up beds with fresh compost and getting things ready for planting out onion sets and potatoes before the end of the month. So we are still working on bed preparation, but it all looks good.
The poly tunnels are sown with beetroot, carrots and radishes with oriental greens, spinach, lettuce, kohlrabi and spring onions growing well already. The time spent making gravel paths has paid off as the tunnels seem warmer and are a much more pleasant environment than the soggy mess we had last year. Let's hope all the veg agrees with us.
Our next farmers' market is Saturday, 1 April (no fooling), 9-1 in the square in Huntly. We make a weekly delivery of veg to customers within the MacDuff/Banff/King Edward/Turriff area, with our first delivery of the year on Friday 20 January. Let us hear from you by email or phone if you're interested in a delivery.
