We farm naturally and holistically without the use of herbicides or pesticides and use nature and hard work to minimise the damage caused by pests such as biological control, regular hand removal of slugs and snails, companion planting and encourage natural wildlife habitats for greater biodiversity. We start sowing our seeds in January using the biodynamic cycle.
We are a green company with a very low carbon foot print. Caring for the environment is very important to us.
The nursery is off grid, we create our own electricity with solar panels and a wind turbine and harvest rain water for our plants.
At the nursery we have a small orchard, a range of soft fruit, raised vegetable beds and sell a range of herbs and Rhubarb plants which are also available by mail order.
The nursery is not open to the public due to Planning Restrictions therefore we sell our plants and produce mail order and from various stockists locally and throughout the country. Please check out our stockists. Our produce and plants are also available at local farmers markets.
Our mail order plants are supplied in 7cm pots from April to August each year with a minimum order of just three plants. Larger 1 and 2 litre pots are available from us at farmers markets or through one of our stockists.
Please allow 4-5 days for delivery for web orders.
Prices include VAT where applicable (such as chilli chocolate, chilli jewellery etc)
We also supply fresh chilli packs which are available from August. We have standard mixed packs and specialist packs picked to order.
Our produce range includes six flavours of chilli chocolate, a range of chutneys and preserves from sweet and mild to extremely hot, a range of chilli sauces from mild to wild and a limited supply of dry and fresh chillies - all in our distinctive Dartmoor Chilli Farm packaging.
Dartmoor Chilli Farm produces a range of quality preserves and sauces all made traditionally by hand in small regular batches for maximum quality and flavour.
We use our own chillies in all of our chilli produce.
Along with our chillies and sweet peppers we also grow :
Elderflowers and berries
Which we use in our produce (depending on the season)
We are always looking at new flavours and produce to increase our existing range.
