Based in rural Herefordshire, in the shadow of the Black Mountains, in 1985 a friend of Jim Hardy who was working as a cook at an alternative cancer treatment centre started growing sprouts to include in patients’ meals. Together they started sprouting in buckets in a static caravan and just supplying local health food stores. Selling the sprouts locally, distribution to shops and wholesalers increased and with the development of the internet combined with a renewed interest and change in people’s eating habits to more healthy products we were able to increase our range to include wheatgrass and microgreens. Organic status was achieved in 1992 when we gained the Soil Association accreditation. Alina and Tom have been the guiding hands behind A S Organic for the past ten years, leading a small team of passionate growers in their mission to provide healthy, wholesome organic greens for juicing and smoothies. We aim never to waste a morsel, by juicing and freezing anything that doesn’t find a home.
