Buttervilla Farm is run by Robert Hocking an inspirational grower who has got together with two other farms, Keveral and Skye Grove to grow a range of extraordinary and diverse plants including heritage tomatoes, edible flowers and microleaf (infant food plant leaves to scatter over salads and grills) The produce is organic and in the case of Skye Grove ultra-green since all the ploughing is actually done using draught horses. The quality of the vegetables and the variety is awesome – it makes you want to cook. Rose Prince Good Food Producers Guide 2011
