Due to the nature of our site, harvesting patterns and the British weather we cannot guarantee to have all listed produce available all of the time (and at times we may have more than that listed) so please telephone us ahead of your visit if you require specific produce. (List updated 03/04/2017)

BeekeepersWe have our own hive back in operation this year in our newly landscaped bee garden! We are giving them time to settle in and any honey for sale this year will be local honey from our supporters. All the fruit, vegetables, herbs and most plants are grown on our site by trainees and volunteers. The produce is seasonal and it is cultivated using organic and permaculture principles.

Honey and Juice

Our apple juice is made from the fruit harvested from our orchard. Our chutney is made from the abundance of produce available in the autumn. Most importantly, they are all delicious!

Paul Harvesting

In most cases, we will harvest produce as needed so customers have the chance to pick out what they want and it is as fresh as possible.
Farmers’ Market
We also sell fruit, vegetables, plants and crafts at the St Albans Farmers’ Market which is held on the second Sunday of every month. Our stall can be found opposite the café in the Old Town Hall. Please refer to the Farmer’s Market and Events Calendar sections of the website for more information and the dates of future Farmers’ Markets.

Logs

During the late autumn and winter months there is obviously less focus on horticultural activity but we all need something to do on site. For this reason, we created a small wood chopping area which is used to produce logs and kindling for sale.DSC_0068

We are lucky that local tree surgeons and wood yards donate excess timber for this purpose.

The price for a bag of logs or kindling is £4.50. Free local delivery is available for orders of 10 bags or more.

Other Products

We also produce the following craft items and garden furniture on site:

  • Bird boxes
  • Bird tables
  • Bug boxes (to encourage useful predators such as ladybirds, lacewings and hover flies into the garden)
  • Bat boxes
  • Raised wooden planters

These items are generally made to order to take into account different specifications. If you are interested in placing an order for any of these products, please contact us on 01727 847311 or earthworks@earthworksstalbans.co.uk
