Cook's Tip

For a chunky soup, omit the blending stage. Great served with pan fried diced bacon scattered on top.


Most of the country’s celery is grown by farmers for G’s, across Cambridgeshire and East Anglia, where the rich fertile soil suits it well. In total 900 ha (the equivalent of 1,350 football pitches) of celery is grown of which 68% is LEAF Marque.

G’s are one of hundreds of farms opening for Open Farm Sunday on 7 June.
