Fresh Kentish Quince – Now In Stock – New Season

Quinces have a lovely aromatic flavour that is almost citrus. They have the texture of pear and need to be cooked. They can be made into jelly and a range of other items. The astringent nature of quinces means they can be used in savoury dishes.

We like blending quince with apple as it adds an extra punch to a crumble or pie. Quince can also be made into a range of alcohol such as liqueur

Quince as been associated with helping digestion.

It is a relatively new fruit and we love how both the apricot and Mirabelle compliment each other. You can taste the Mirabelle and the apricot and what stands out is the thicker texture from the apricot. Aprimira is also know as Miracot. Don’t miss out on trying this new seasonal treat.

Fresh forced Kentish Rhubarb

Fresh Forced Rhubarb 1kg-10Kg

2024 Harvest – Forced British Rhubarb – Out of Stock – Get 2025 notification by selecting weight and adding email 

We have partnered with our friends at a fellow Kentish farm to sell their delicious Forced Rhubarb. At Roughway we love sharing our fresh produce with you but after trying our friends Rhubarb we had to share this seasonal delight. Grown in Kent this Rhubarb is perfect for crumbles, jams, gins and all manner of foodie delights for the Winter season.

Forced Rhubarb is normally thinner than the unforced and it produces these extra thin and elegant stems which outdoor does not. Our bundles of Tender Stem Forced Rhubarb taste delicious, they are thinner sticks than you would find in the supermarkets but there is no difference in flavour or quality. In fact we have found the smaller stems cook slightly faster and you still get bright pink juice and the sticks crumble nicely.

New Thicker Stems – For 2023 we are now able to offer thicker stems from the plants and crop. These are still thinner than outdoor rhubarb but are thicker than the Tender Stems. Please see photos to get an idea on the difference.

Other Information – The Forced Rhubarb Season usually runs from December to March. Tunnelled rhubarb runs from March to May and outdoor from April/June and forced picks up again in December.

You are ordering British Rhubarb with the leaf. This ensures freshness, longevity and greater flavour but remember to cut these off when they arrive. Forced Rhubarb is grown in the dark.

We may occasionally need to cut off the leaf or shorten the rhubarb before dispatch. This is most often due to vigorous growth making them too long for box dispatch.

Currently Available in weights of 1kg, 2kg, 3kg, 4kg, 5kg, 6kg, 7kg, 8kg and 10kg. 

Our Rhubarb Boxes are:

–          Perfect for cooking those seasonal treats

–          Great value

–          Farm fresh quality

–          Reduced time from field to table

–          Traceability – Know exactly where your plums have come from

–          Directly Supporting British Farming

Looking after your Rhubarb

We keep the Rhubarb chilled to lock in the freshness. When your bundle arrives if not putting to work straight away then keep it in the fridge. You will have around 1 week with it being at its best but do monitor. Rhubarb is quite hardy and so if you leave it a bit too long then it is worth trying to cook with it so it doesn’t go to waste.

Fresh White Cherries – 3Kg

2023 Season –  OUT OF STOCK – See you in 2024 – Sign up to get notified below

We have a limited range of white cherries on the farm. They are an eclectic mix of varieties that are generally lighter in appearance and are a charming mix of reds and yellows on the outer skin. White cherries taste different to black/dark red cherries, they are still sweet but the flesh is a mixture of oranges, whites and yellows, they are ever so slightly reminiscent of a peach or nectarine but the flavour is still distinctly that of a cherry. They are certainly worth trying!

White cherries can still be red on the outside! So do not be shocked if you have a box of light red cherries. The more common difference is that the flesh inside the cherry is white / yellow opposed to red, purple or black. We could send any variety of white cherry we have so pictures are for display only.

Supply and availability – We have a very limited number of white cherry varieties on the farm. So our supply in 2023 will be very limited. We will be dispatching orders in the order they are received.

We may have to refund your order if we get more orders than supply. For the last 3 years we have sold out very quickly, so please be aware to avoid disappointment

It is likely we will sell out of this variety.
