New season forced rhubarb has arrived in The Farm Shop. Sourced from Simon Green at Carr Gate in Wakefield, just 5 miles away. Some of our Greengrocery colleagues visited Simon to find out just how the rhubarb is grown.

This elegant British speciality is ‘forced’ in the famously dark growing sheds of Yorkshire’s rhubarb triangle. The process safeguards the rhubarb’s striking colour and bright flavour. The Greens have been growing rhubarb since the 1800s!
