Home-grown foods as fresh as a daisy
Community greenhouse goods given Bideford shop launch
A RANGE of new food products launched in Bideford this week could hardly be from closer to home.
Produce grown by the local social enterprise group Grow@Jigsaw is being used to create a range of home-made chutneys, pickles, jams, preserves and soups.
Steve and Angela Blazey opened their new caf�, home-made cakes and savouries business Blazey’s in Mill Street just three months ago.
Now they are using the Grow@Jigsaw produce to create tasty new additions for their shelves under their own label, with a ‘deliciously Devon’ promise.

“It is most important to us that everything we use comes from Devon,” said Steve. “This produce from Grow@Jigsaw could not be fresher. It is picked and turned into chutneys in small batches on almost the same day.”
Grow@Jigsaw is based at former council greenhouses in Victoria Park, Bideford, and also cultivates local allotments. It is an horticultural social enterprise, working with a range of groups to give training and work opportunities based on food production.
