Head Grower
Rosie Aitken

I'm the head grower at Good Small Farms. I work hard to produce delicious food whilst also respecting the habitat that I’m growing in. I always strive to add to the natural environment by creating diversity and opportunity for wildlife to thrive. This means producing a variety of different crops and adding to the soil with compost and green manures. My passion for vegetables started when I was sixteen, living in Ireland and I started working on a friends market garden at the weekends. I went on to get a degree in horticulture from the Scottish Rural University College in Edinburgh. I trained in vegetable production at Abbey Home Farm in Cirencester where I completed a two and a half year apprenticeship. I also ran a Starter Farm with my friend Nell. Together we set up Rosie and Nell's Veg. You'll see me with your bags at our pick up sites.

The most amazingly tasty mix of seasonal salad leaves picked that morning are simply second to none. Quality produce grown with care and attention, just wonderful!
