Maddocks Farm Organics

 Maddocks Farm Organics

Jan and Stuart uprooted their family in 2002 to move to Devon as a direct result of watching far too many episodes of ‘Escape to River Cottage’! The lifestyle change after more than a decade of living and working in London was literally a breathe of fresh air and Jan set about establishing Maddocks Farm Organics, offering small scale seasonal organic vegetable boxes. With Stuart still commuting to London and Imogen not yet at school, it was an extremely challenging time.

The salads developed from a desire to offer more than just lettuces in the boxes and the feedback was so positive that the business grew from there and we soon started supplying shops and pubs. In 2008 Jan made the conscious decision to stop the wider veggie boxes and to specialise in edible flowers and salads.

Maddocks Farm Organics is the only edible flowers specialist that has an organic licence. We haven’t looked back since moving to Devon and are delighted with the recognition our product have achieved. Our Seasonal Flower Salad Bags were recognised with a Highly Commended Organic Award in 2009 and our Herb Flower Salad was Winner in the 2012 Soil Association Food Awards. In 2013 Jan was made a Soil Association Food Hero which was a great honour and in 2014 was a finalist in the Organic Innovations Awards. 2016 saw us become runners up in the Organic Industry’s BOOM Awards for the most Innovative Organic Business. In 2017/18 we won Organic Industry’s BOOM Awards for Best Fresh Produce in the UK.

MEET THE ENTERPRISE

Blushing cook

Blushing Cook

Sammi’s passion for cake making began after completing a fine art foundation and studying Patisserie at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School. Sammi worked as a pastry chef in restaurants such as Michelin Star Le Gavroche and went onto work as the Head Chef for renowned cake designer Peggy Porschen.

Combining her passion for baking, art and all things floral, Sammi set up Blushing Cook 4 years ago in her home kitchen in South London. Creating blossomy designs using beautiful fresh, organic and mostly edible British flowers which are grown in the heart of the Devonshire countryside.

 Blushing Cook strives to create cakes that are not just florally beautiful and blooming delicious but with a careful consideration for the environment. We select ingredients which are as seasonal, local, organic and fair-trade as possible, from the flour to the flowers, we consider everything.

Blushing Cook’s signature ‘Pressed Flower Cake’ design, which was originally created by Sammi and which we are best known for, is inspired by wild flower meadows.

It has really become Blushing Cook’s star trend setter for the couples looking for something beautiful and unique.
