150g of Fresh watercress straight from the farm. 100% plastic-free in compostable packaging.

We know a thing or two about fresh wasabi but did you know we have been growing watercress since the 1800’s?

Our fresh watercress is cut and bunched, straight from the farm. 100% plastic-free, traditional bunches in compostable packaging.

Grown in mineral-rich spring water on our farms in Dorset, Hampshire and Spain, our watercress is hand-harvested at its best and wrapped unwashed to give maximum shelf life.

In Victorian times watercress was picked and sent by rail around the country to provide affordable, quality nutrition to the nation. Sold in bunches and often eaten on the go by factory and city workers, we like to think it may have been one of the first (and certainly healthiest) fast foods!

Loaded with peppery isothiocyanates and high in Vitamin C, A and K. Discover exactly how healthy watercress is here

Keep watercress in the fridge. The bunches can be placed in a glass of water to increase life or even frozen for cooking.

Our bunches are traditionally cut to provide a great balance between stalk and leaf. Perfect for trimming for salads, blending for pestos and smoothies or for cooking in delicious soups and sauces. For recipe inspiration visitwatercress.co.uk
