Founded in 2012 to supply beans, top quality ingredients, delicious foods and other products from British farms. They’re particularly interested in searching out less well-known foods, like the fava bean – grown in Britain since the Iron Age but now almost forgotten – and black badger peas.

They founded Hodmedod following the successful Great British Beans trial project (run by Provenance for East Anglia Food Link as part of its Norwich Resilient Food Project, which was developed with Transition Norwich to stimulate and assess demand for indigenous pulses)

Their first product was the Fava Bean. Fava Beans are delicious, nutritious and good for the soil and bees. Split Fava Beans are especially versatile and easy to cook as they don’t need soaking.

Since launching packs of dried Fava Bean they continue working to search out and develop production of other less-known foods, like "Black Badger" Carlin Peas and Quinoa from the plains of Essex.
