Isle of Wight Tomatoes are proud to be part of the Conservation Grade movement, a nature friendly scheme aiming to increase biodiversity on farms across the country. As well as a wide range of non-organic varieties, Isle of Wight Tomatoes look to give as much organic choice as possible using soil certified by the Soil Association and composting all plant waste each year to be used in the next year’s harvest. In addition to this, the pollination of the plants is looked after by bees native to the UK and rainwater is collected from the glasshouse roofs for environmentally friendly irrigation.
