Home of CorNish Saffron
Brian and Margaret moved to Rosevine on the Roseland in 2014 and fell in love with their surroundings and the views across Gerrans Bay. They decided to work the land and grow Saffron.
Why? Saffron is an integral part of the Cornish culture and its history. Exchanged with the Phoenicians for tin and copper from the Cornish mines. Saffron has been a highly prized spice used by the Cornish and part of their lives ever since. Used mainly to make Saffron Cake and Saffron Buns.
Until now Saffron has not been grown commercially in Cornwall for many years. Records show the last Saffron field being sold in Penryn at the end of the 18th century.
a family BUSINESS
Brian and Margaret with some help from their family plant, pick, pluck, process and post with their fingers, how about that for an Eco-friendly business!
They use only natural fertilizers including seaweed from the bay.
Brian and Margaret say that growing saffron is a labour of love. Every year they are excited to see the first flowers arrive and to think about all the uses their customers may have for their saffron harvest. Which of course are limitless - Buddhist monks even using it to dye their kasaya.
Each jar of our Cornish saffron is carefully quality checked and weighed by Brian to ensure you receive the very best saffron. We currently offer 1g jars at £35 plus p+p or collection can be arranged if you are local.
We aim to post within 2 working days of payment being received.
