Grown for h y p h a
After meeting in the hospitality industry years ago, Nicholas has worked closely with Alice Leech, a grower from Chester. She began growing edible flowers and has expanded to grow other produce exclusively for hypha.
Growing our own produce means we can grow ingredients to create specific menus, rather than just using what is available from 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, including 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. By preserving and fermenting the rich abundance of exceptional ingredients on offer, we are able to dive into their flavours throughout the seasons.
