'I don't believe there will be any open-field asparagus to harvest until mid May,' predicts John Chinn, owner of Cobrey Farms in Herefordshire (01989 562770; www.cobrey.co.uk).

John Chinn, the managing partner of Cobrey Farms commented, "This has been a very important advancement, not just for our business but for UK asparagus production overall. I would like to thank Hargreaves Plants for their help in development of this project. The product we are harvesting is much fresher than the imported spears found on the shelves at present, and as a result, the consumer is provided with a better eating experience. The product is being sold by leading M & S stores throughout the UK."

First up was John Chinn from Cobrey Farms.

Tweet: John Chinn from Cobrey Farm talking about farming in Herefordshire #freshproduce #FPJWM
John spoke about the history of farming in Herefordshire and the entrepreneurial and Innovative nature of the growers there. This has been driven mainly by the incredibly small pockets of land and the undulating nature of the landscape. The drive for innovation is also due in part to the poor transport links and the higher costs of transportation.
John went on to speak about his analysis of the SWOT (Strengths / Weaknesses / Opportunities and Threats) of the Herefordshire grower base and the challenges it faces. He also posed the question are all supermarkets the same?
Tweet: Are supermarkets all the same? #freshproduce #FPJWM
John also spoke about "Terroir" of the region - Wikipedia definition is loosely translated as "a sense of place", embodied in certain characteristic qualities, the sum of the effects that the local environment has had on the manufacture of the product.
...
Along with the extension of the season of British Asparagus - John has his own little passion for growing his newly planted Vineyard of Grapes for British wine production.
...
The top table was made up of: Anthony Snell (AJ & CI Snell), John Chinn (Cobrey Farms), Sarah Pettitt (NFU Horticulture Board Chair) and Sue Kennedy (Elsoms Seeds').
...
Michael kicked off the debate by asking John to further expand upon the innovative approach that Cobrey Farms had taken regarding expanding the British Asparagus season to November.
...
Sarah and John made good points about season extensions by discussing the need to secure a fixed permanent team of employees throughout the year.
