August - November I Crocadon Farm, Cornwall
Sourced from Natoora's 120-acre organic farm in Cornwall, these baby leeks are grown in open, organic fields, without the use of any chemical pesticides or fertilisers. That means they grow naturally slowly, producing tender shoots that are incredibly sweet and much more subtle in profile than the fully grown harvests that come later in the year. Very few growers will harvest at this baby stage, as most want to leave their crops to grow to a bigger size before harvesting - a greater weight means a bigger profit. Picked now, their flavour is a totally different experience, one to be savoured immediately.
