Farmers and producers in the area are disproving the belief that there is a vegetable crisis.

Bad weather in Spain has affected courgette crops and salads which are imported to the UK at this time of year because they do not naturally grow in colder weather.

Vic Uttley, who runs Rutland Roots, a local produce delivery scheme based at Zetland Plants in Burley Road, Langham, sources most of her fruit, vegetables, eggs, flour, meat, milk and honey from Rutland or the neighbouring counties and says that if everyone relied on seasonal produce, there would be no crisis.
