Maddocks Farm Organics produces edible flowers, leaves, herbs and wild foragings for wedding cake decoration. Based in Devon we are the only organic licensed edible flower specialists in the UK. We can offer a selection of seasonal organic edible flowers or just one particular variety if you wish.
Edible flowers are something that can’t be washed or peeled to remove any chemical residue. Commerial flowers from florists, supermarkets and garden centers are sprayed with chemicals unfit for human consumption and cannot be eaten.
Growing organic edible flowers is about so much more than simply removing chemicals from the growing process or meeting the strict standards of the Soil Association. It is about developing an understanding of the plants that we grow; working with the seasons; improving the soil structure and letting plants mature at a pace which allows their full flavour, colours and perfume to develop.
Our electricity comes from photovoltaic cells on the barn roof. Our water comes from a natural spring and is sterilised using UV filters so no chemicals, even chlorine are present. Our waste water is filter through a natural reed bed system. Our edible flower packaging is 100% recycled and recyclable. This means our carbon footprint is almost negligible. No other edible flower specialist goes to these lengths to have such a green organic business.
