What is tenderstem?, well I suppose it’s a by product once broccoli has grown very quickly it goes to flower. Blink and it’s missed, and you have a field of yellow flowers. At this point it usually gets ploughed back in, but the bees and the hover fly’s love it and when feed is hard for them to find they have plenty to go at, so it’s like a win win - feed me and the bee.
I chop back areas on different weeks and I get a secondary crop of broccoli known as the Tenderstem. This I harvest for you, hence a feed for me and a feed for the bee. This is how we chose to farm at Bramblebee with nature in our foremost thoughts, also no chemicals have been used to grow it hence it is very clean and healthy!
This Tenderstem are a part of our zero residue program here at Bramblebee Farm.
