Meet the team!

Helen and Andrew have lived and worked at Venton Veor for the past 50 years. Along with the occasional help of their two children, Mark and Lowenna, they grow and pull bare-rooted heritage variety brassica plants for gardeners at local farmer's markets and more recently via their online website to the rest of the country.

Andrew is the third generation of bare rooted brassica plant growers, with his father and grandfather before him, starting in 1924. As the main source of knowledge and expertise, Andrew takes a leading role in sowing the seeds, pulling the plants and in-person customer sales. Helen is the person who keeps everything running! From making the labels and plant passports, to communicating with DHL, customer queries and issues. She also helps pulling and packing the orders.

Mark studied Agriculture at Harper Adams University and since graduating has been home helping on the farm. Lowenna studied Conservation Biology and Ecology at Exeter university and currently works in North Devon on a lottery funded project called Finding Nature's Footprints with the North Devon Coast AONB. Both of them help pull and pack plants, especially during the busy summer months.
