June 1 - August 31
The table below reflects the current season for the UK and Ireland. If it's listed, then it's in season. You can browse the list of what is currently available, or search for item/s of particular interest.
Items are added/updated on a regular basis. Please let me know of any errors or ommissions. And if so, sincere apologies!
Unfortunately, today's society is increasingly removed from the natural cycles of our world. This application is designed as a shopping aid aimed at highlighting seasonally appropriate food choices. This in turn returns numerous benefits for our health, well-being and environment. The main benefits are:
Quality - foods cultivated in season will taste better and have a higher nutritional value.
Cost - seasonal foods will tend to be produced locally. This boosts the local economy while also reducing associated energy costs and delivering lower costs to the consumer.
Planet - lengthy shipping routes become unnecessary and seasonal foods require less in the way of artificial (and often toxic) stimulants, for example, fertilisers and pesticides.
Hi, my name is Greg. I had the idea to develop this application some time ago. While other priorities and projects had directed my focus elsewhere, recent months have illustrated the importance of living in tune with our home.
I offer the site as is in the hope that it proves in some way useful to you. I have no commercial interests in the project. That said, by way of full disclosure, I personally favour a low carbohydrate diet. It's therefore possible that some unconcious bias may creep into the project. I will do my best to keep this in check.
Be well 😊
