The story from
field to frozen



Organic UK veg is planted later when the soils are warmer so it has a better chance of living as organic farming does not allow for nitrogen application (which gives conventional crops vigour and boosts the early growing period).


Once planted the organic crop is nurtured and cultivated with methods which do not have an impact on either the crop or the land. Pest control is minimal and weeds are managed manually, pre-emergence flame weeders are common practice.


As the organic crops are planted later, they need to be harvested later too. Often organic produce is smaller in size at it has not had its growth supplemented by fertiliser application.


When the organic crops arrive at Hartleys factory, we sort and process them straight away in exactly the same rigorous way as conventional crops.


Organic ingredients are labelled differently for traceability purposes. The organic finished product is sent away to independent labs for stringent testing to confirm it is 100% pesticide and herbicide free.
