Tesco Eat Happy Project!

Field trips certainly have changed since our day! We’re very proud to have been involved in our first ever Online Field trip as part of the Tesco Eat Happy project!

Here at Alan Bartlett and Sons we think its important that everyone knows where their food is coming from which is why we are supporting the Eat Happy project, teaching primary school children all about carrots. As part of the project, our very own Toby Bartlett starred in a live online field trip that was watched in schools by children across the country and gave them an opportunity to ask their questions about carrots directly to Toby!

If you couldn’t tune in last week then don’t worry, the whole session is available online here. Obviously the video is no longer live but if you have any questions we will be more than happy to answer them over email or Twitter!

Bartlett & Sons in the Cambs Times!

Did you spot us in the Cambs Times?

Here at Bartlett & Sons we are incredibly proud of our work on the world’s first fully automatic parsnip trimming line so naturally we couldn’t wait to share the news!

After two years of hard work, the trimming line is going to give us an even better cut of parsnip, as well as massively improving productivity and output.

If you missed the post then don’t worry, you can still view it online here! 


Chatteris Midsummer Festival

Barletts Sponsor Chatteris Midsummer Festival

Here at Bartlett’s we know how important the local community is which is why this year we sponsored the Chatteris Midsummer Festival!

Thousands flocked to the festival on the 27th and 28th of June to witness the Mardi Gras-themed parade as well as a whole host of other activities including  miniature steam engine rides, cream teas and a dog show.

Even the bad weather couldn’t stop the festivities with music going on until late in the evening for Chatteris’ own Party in the Park!

We’re helping kids to ‘Eat Happy’.

‘Farm to Fork’ is a nationwide initiative from Tesco that forms part of their ‘Eat Happy’ campaign. The idea being to help educate children about where their food comes from. The initiative includes opportunities to meet growers on their farms and so we’ve joined forces with Tesco to give primary school kids the chance to tour the Bartlett’s factory.
We wash and pack around 500 tonnes of our farm-grown carrots and parsnips every day. Children will see the dirt covered vegetables brought in straight from the fields and follow their journey through water flumes, roller graders and camera grading. Then they’ll see the selected vegetables packed into an assortment of bags before being put into the enormous fridge, ready for collection by Tesco.
Including a quiz to ensure a complete learning experience, the children will also be given a certificate and some fresh vegetables to take home.
If you represent a primary school and want to arrange a tour please contact Terry Hawthorn or Laura Boyce on 01354 692685

Bartlett’s Bowlfuls

We’ve used all our veg-growing experience to create our very own soups. Bartlett’s Bowlfuls are made with the freshest vegetables (including our own-grown carrots and parsnips) for the very best flavour. Every bowl is full of the tastiest ingredients – in fact we pack more veg into our soups than any other. They’re also available in three deliciously unique recipes:

British Onion
Parsnip and Honey
Carrot and Ginger

Bartlett’s Bowlfuls are exclusively available in Tesco stores (East Anglia only) at an RRP of £2.20.

Solar installation complete

21288_Oliver-and-Toby-Bartlett.gif

We spent £1m on building one of the UK’s largest solar panel installations’. The 1.2MW system consists of 4,111 PV panels and is forecast to provide up to 25% of our total annual consumption.

Our 1,456-acre carrot and parsnip farm now benefits two-fold from the power of the sun, after installing the solar PV array to harvest electricity.

We recognised the importance of sustainability and its impact on the environment, so as a result we decided to invest in over 4,000 solar modules to significantly reduce the farm’s carbon footprint.

The installation will achieve material cost savings for the business and at the same time greatly contribute to our carbon footprint reduction ambitions.
