All fresh vegetables and fruits are harvested to order, enhancing the quality of our food and minimising waste. Please confirm your menu choice for each person in your party in the 'Tearoom Menu Choice' box provided during checkout.

Seeds are one of the key issues for food sovereignty and climate change mitigation.  In a time where diversity and quality are declining it is imperative to reconnect once again with the practice of harvesting seeds that are tolerant and adapted to the changing climate.
