Beacon Foods invest in UK Garlic growing trial

October 17th 2016

Resized

Following on from our exciting small scale trial of growing UK garlic we are now stepping things up a little here at Beacon Foods to a 10 hectare trial in Herefordshire.  To ensure we knew all we could about growing garlic Edward and our Herefordshire farming friends have been to visit Las Pedroneras, Spain to watch the planting of the garlic.  They also visited the machinery suppliers to inspect the best kit for the job,  together we have agreed to buy a complete line that will break the garlic bulbs, remove husk and size grade the cloves ready for planting in a shiny six row garlic bulb planting machine and a harvester in preparation for the harvest.  We are all really excited to see the machines in action, so keep your eyes peeled for more updates and pictures!
