Nurtured In Norfolk are Based in Dereham, Norfolk and are specialist growers of Micro Cress, Micro Herbs, Pea Shoots, Edible Leaves, Edible Flowers and Micro Veg. They are passionate about giving chefs and caterers not just high quality products, but products that suit their exact needs. They have a large range that are specially selected for their intense flavours, eye catching colours, visual impact and something a little bit unusual. Used and eaten whole, there’s almost no preparation and very little waste.
Allan and Sue Miller worked full time as chefs for 20 years before becoming growers. As ex chefs their simple ethos is that the quality and consistency of the product has to be of an exacting standard they would have expected and been happy to use themselves. This is especially important to DDP, as they fully understand what chefs are trying to achieve in terms of flavour, colour and presentation.
They both decided to invest their time and money into their business, which is when Nurtured In Norfolk really began. Growing from greenhouses in the back garden to use in the restaurant they worked at, to now supplying a large range of wholesalers and Michelin star restaurants with their top quality selection of Micro Cress, Micro Herbs, Pea Shoots, Edible Leaves, Edible Flowers and Micro Veg. Nurtured In Norfolk is very much a family run business, who now have a whole team of dedicated staff working alongside them.
All products have been grown on a natural soil base, benefiting from nutrients that are present throughout the growing stages and therefore extending the shelf life. They believe that growing them this way gives a far superior tasting product.

Ringden Farm is based on the Sussex/Kent border, in Etchingham and specialise in growing Apples, Stonefruit, Pears and Berries. The orchards at Ringden were first planted in 1949 and since then they have been expert growers of fruit along with a wide range of fresh fruit juices.
Like DDP, Ringden is a family business and they have vast experience and knowledge, which we are able to call on, particularly during the English Apple Season, from August onwards.
As well as many common English varieties including Braeburn, Cox and Russet, they have supplied us with in excess of over 30 different varieties, which have included some lesser known ones such as Limelight, Red Devil, Rubinola and Saturn.
DDP has always championed British produce and the fruit grown at Ringden Farm has exceptional flavour, enabling us to 'fly the flag' with apples for around 10 months of the year.
