New season forced rhubarb will be available from The Greengrocery in The Farm Shop from the middle of w/c 15th January. 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!
