Grown for hypha
After meeting in the hospitality industry year ago, Nicholas has worked closely with Alice Leech, a growner from Chester. She began growing edible flowers and has expanded to growing other produce exclusively for hypha.
Growing our own produce means we can grow ingredients to create specific menus we design, rather than just using what is available from traditional suppliers. We have complete control of our supply chain and can ensure our produce is now being grown on one of the UK’s oldest organic grow fields.
hypha also brings together other growers who specialise in other ingredients, like the Garlic Queen just outside Chester, who grows specialist heritage garlic.
All our staff are included in our produce, helping forage native produce from the banks of the River Dee, to local forests. We stock up on the rich abundance of exceptional ingredients and preserve to use throughout the year.
