Managed just in time to support you after seeing you on Levy market today. Good luck with your plans. I know how hard you work to produce those lovely veg.

Thank you for making locally grown organic veg more accessible to us. You’ve obviously put a lot of hard work into your business. 🙂

Can't back you enough, Lindsay! Farming is tough, you've stuck at it and have got more determination than ever! Manchester needs more locally and sustainably produced, organic veg and you're the woman to do it :)

a great project with a bright future - important for the people buying veg at Levenshulme market and increasing the organic growing for everyone in Greater Manchester

I've seen how hard it is to make this kind of venture pay, and the hard work that goes into it. It is of great value to all of us. Thank you. I wish you the best in the future.
