The past few months have caused one of the worst droughts in 60 years. The extremely high temperatures have caused many problems for our local farmers due to the evaporation rate causing significant irrigation problems. Water supplies are low and therefore crop is running at least 3 weeks behind schedule. This has also been affected by the wet spring which caused a delay in planting.
We are experiencing low supply on carrots, parsnips with cauliflower, broccoli and lettuces also struggling to grow in this weather. This is due to the high temperatures of over 20 degrees causing the crops to shut down and not grow.
With the forecast set to continue much the same for the coming weeks it is unlikely for the situation to improve in the foreseeable future. We will work our hardest here to continue to provide you with quality fruit and vegetables where possible however we apologise for any shortages that may occur over this period.
