Couple of early events on the markets page. On the 4th February Phil will be up at Frome for the Vegan Festival and on the following Saturday, we have a new coffee & food event at Buckfast Abbey. We hope to see you there.
The free chocolate on orders over £20 will continue throughout January - as it proved very popular last month.
We apologise for the site problems. It is due to our ISP doing something with their servers and beyond our control. Hopefully the problems should be resolved soon. (All sorted now 3pm 28/12)
We've been busy with markets. 8 in a row. Phew.
Today we are back at the nursery doing web orders. All orders upgraded to courier delivery.
The free chocolate offer continues until Christmas Day.
We've also been working on the website so it's easier to navigate.
Made 400 bottles of Destroyer Sauce. This latest batch is now even hotter. The base chilli is Reaper but we've also added alot more Habanero Fatali, Habanero Paper Lantern. All fresh chillies grown and picked here at the farm.
We have swapped our website back to the original design as we feel it is easier to navigate. We realise it's not an "all singing and dancing affair" but simple design combined with a good shopping cart system, means we can keep our product prices very competitive.
At the Animal Aid Christmas fair on Saturday we raised over £140 for the Fleecehaven Sheep Sanctuary. A big thankyou to all our customers.
NEW STOCKIST ALERT
Ann-Marie Barker & Debbie Cornish
It's treat o'clock
5 Wolborough Street
A brand new shop offering sweet and savoury gifts.
They are located by the Clock Tower in Newton Abbot (also opposite Austin's toy shop).
Please note our postcode has changed. Half our deliveries go to our neighbours and if we ever open to the public, having the old postcode would cause no end of problems. Therefore to keep our neighbours happy, we've changed our postcode.
Our new postcode effective immediately is TQ13 7FP (rather than the old 7HG).
Everything else is the same.
Events page updated - some new Christmas events for November and December.

Ready to be sorted, quality control and de-stemmed
Two exciting bits of news....
1) We won best UK Chilli Grower at the National Chilli Awards 2017. Apparently it was because of our ethos, method of growing and our customer service which all scored highly with the judges. Very nice to win, especially as we didn't actually enter. We were nominated.
The judges comments were as follows "I nominated your business because of the fact that: - you grow 100+ varieties, green - off grid & herbicide/ fungicide free, you have a projects page with things to do / helpful advice for the would be grower, you have a huge database of info on varieties, again useful for the would be grower. So although you may not be as big as others, or have been present at the festivals this year, quantity & marketing presence aren't everything..."
2) Last night we won GOLD at the Food and Drink Devon Awards 2017 for our best selling DARTMOOR GOBLIN smoky garlic chilli sauce
We have removed older features than October 2017.
We realised the news items went back over 5 years. It was seriously slowing down the website loading!
