Chalke Valley watercress is a sixth-generation family business, growing their own traditional dark green watercress on the fantastic natural springs of the Chalke valley. They have supplied fresh cress nationwide since 1880!

It’s important note that they still grow their watercress in the classic way, in the same natural spring water, but the watercress is now harvested by machine in the early hours of the morning while the temperatures are low, it’s then packaged and sent out the same day.

We still grow our own dark green variety in a traditional way
