Phantassie is based on the edge of East Linton in rural East Lothian, just 25 miles from Edinburgh. The original growing area, a one acre walled garden, is a sheltered patch which has been in use for over 150 years. Gradually we’ve also cultivated another 7 acres. Our large unheated polytunnels enable us to extend the growing seasons and provide a variety of vegetables all year round. We supplement our produce with veg from other local Organic Growers, as well as England and Europe with a cornucopia of Fruit, always as local as possible, never airfreighted and FAIRTRADE if applicable.
We grow using natural compost and manure, comfrey and seaweed; using crop rotation, green manuring and companion planting to aid the strength and fertility of the soil. We use absolutely no chemical sprays, fertilisers or pesticides. We are Organic Growers, Packers and Wholesalers with the Market Garden fully certified by the Biodynamic Association - BDAA Organic Standard GB-ORG-06
