About Us - Springfield Kitchen
We have spent most of our working life in hospitality, me as a chef and Lisa as a manager.
We moved to Rugby in 2004 and as novice gardeners, took on an unloved plot, "Springfield". Since moving to "Springfield" we've spent the majority of our spare time turning a forgotten garden into one that now provides us with much of our vegetables and more recently soft fruits. We garden as "green" as we can turning everything that we cannot use into compost for the garden. We use no peat based composts and we use no pesticides. Follow our seasonal progress on the blog.
We worked tirelessly to bring the garden back to its original beauty, spending 9 years restoring it. We began by rescuing the greenhouse and starting to grow just a few fruit and veggies for ourselves.
Then it really took off….
We turned one lawn into 4 vegetable beds, often having to give produce away to friends and neighbours. Then we converted the compost heap into an allotment, introducing fruit cages, compost bins, rhubarb, to name a few. Our aim was to be as organic as possible.
Slowly, we started to make chutneys, pickles and relishes for ourselves, family and friends. Then in 2013 we made a bounty of produce for a Christmas fayre, everyone loved the flavours making us realise that the possibilities are endless.
Our aim is to use as much of our home grown produce as possible and be as natural as possible.
All of our goodies are made from 100% natural ingredients with no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives, only 100% naturally good food! By not using artificial colours & flavours there may be slight variences in batches but hey........it's natural. Most of our products are suitable for Coeliacs, Vegetarians and Vegans.
As the seasons come and go, we will be producing some great foods for you, some of which will be made from fruits and vegetables from our own garden. As we will be producing items from seasonal produce our stock list will constantly vary. Check with us regularly to see what new products we've created.
We hope you enjoy our website and our products. We look forward to hearing from you and sending you some goodies.
Thank you for looking and happy shopping.
