This Christmas we’re celebrating Perthshire based farmers Tomnah’a Market Garden in our festive edition of #GrowandTellPodcast.
Tomnah’a specialise in seasonal vegetables, cut flowers, woodland eggs, herbal teas, fruits, berries and gourmet mushrooms. They are producers for several #NeighbourFoodScotland markets.
They have long been supporters of local food hubs and run a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) veg box scheme themselves, but in this episode we’ll be focussing on their flower business, an area often overshadowed when we discuss food and drink, but every bit as important and fascinating.
Tomnah’a Flowers use the seasonal foliage around all them to create amazing arrangements for anything from life’s big occasions, to weekly bouquets for the kitchen table, all available from their local farm shop and pick-your-own experiences.
They are part of a collective of farmers that are exploring how to bring more local blooms to more local florists. We’re really interested to hear more! As it’s #GreenChristmas they will also be sharing their tips for natural, seasonal #plasticfree decoration.
Listen out for their Local Gift Guide at the end of the episode, for some inspiration.

Grow and Tell is a podcast for people who love local food, and want to know how to get more of it on to their plates.
For the last few years we’ve been bringing communities together around an incredible array of local, seasonal and sustainable food from across Scotland. Using ‘click n’ collect farmer’s markets’ we help communities shop for more local food than ever before, pay producers a fair price and reconnect with their environment through the food on their plates.
In this podcast we’ll be hearing from some of the people that make this happen
