It comes around quickly each year, but British Asparagus season is starting this weekend.
Asparagus is a labour of love for each farmer who grows it. Each spear is picked by hand when it
reaches the correct height. With a cool, crisp spring, not too wet, not too dry it can mean a
good crop for the year.
Each spear is packed full of goodness, it’s not just a delicious vegetable;
• Promotes healthy bacteria in the large intestine, helping to reduce bloating
• Contains Vitamin K, essential for healthy blood clotting
• Rich in Vitamin C, boosting the immune system
• Helps detoxify the body as it is a mild diuretic
With the hospitality industry starting to open up from lockdown, and with more people going out to
socialise at the pub, just remember this fact for the following morning; Asparagus can help to
cure hangovers and it protects the liver against toxins. Did you know that?
This year, many Asparagus farmers are short on a workforce to harvest the spears because their
normal team of pickers are unable to travel from mainland Europe due to Coronavirus. Farmers are
trying to recruit people locally to their farms to help harvest this vegetable. If you’re looking
for casual labour over the next 8 weeks then contact your local Asparagus farmer to help.
