Meet the Growers

  • Nick Johnson

    A former Soil Association apprentice, Nick learnt how to grow the full range of vegetables at Troed-y-Rhiw Organic Farm for three seasons. He met Huw at the last apprenticeship seminar attended and hearing there was an opportunity at Sheffield Organic Growers, decided to take the next step in his growing career to plan and run a market garden.

  • Moss Valley Market Garden

    Moss Valley Market Garden: In 2012, Martin Bradshaw, began transforming a small patch of farmland into what it is today, namely a biodiverse market garden growing an abundance of biodynamic food!

    With the help of my business partner, James Ford, and our small but dedicated team, we are playing our part in changing the way food is grown and distributed. We practice biodynamics which is the world's oldest system of organic farming.

  • Matt West

    Matt has worked at Beanies Wholefoods for 25 years, buying fresh vegetables and fruit for the lively, colourful shop in Crookes Valley, and helping start Sheffield’s first Organic Box Scheme. A keen allotment gardener, joining Sheffield Organic Growers fulfilled his long held ambition to grow food on a much larger scale and increase the amount of genuinely local produce available in the shop. Almost all Matt’s produce goes to Beanies, and although he now spends most of his time growing, he still helps out there at busy times.
