British Seasonal Food

We recently had an interesting question posted by Ross Boardman in the Wiggly Wigglers Facebook Group.

I'm trying to come up with some ideas on food which doesn't have a season, for example chicken or pork. There is a lot of info out there on food that has specific dates in terms of growing, harvesting and indeed culling, but not a lot on what is there 365 days of the year. This does not refer to whats on the shelf in the local mega-market, but what you could obtain from local producers. Any thoughts?



Farmer Phil has tracked down a great chart on the School Food Trust web site showing a British Seasonal Food Chart (this chart can be downloaded as a .pdf).

The School Food Trust says, “The seasonal food chart highlights vegetables, salad, fruit, meat and fish. It plots their availability across the year and their peak nutritional value to cooks”.
