Jute string at Whippletree Farm

Jute string – a popular choice for gardens

Ready to say hello to delicious spring veg?

Us too!

Time to sample some of the delicious mangetout/ sugar snap peas currently on the go at Whippletree Farm. That’s our jute string holding up the pea netting!

Whippletree Farm is an amazing agroecological producer based on the edge of Dartmoor. Their impressive market garden was established in 2013 and, since then, they’ve become a leading supplier of high-quality vegetables, salads and herbs to local businesses and farmers’ markets.

When proprietor, Becky, left us a glowing review regarding her recent purchase of natural jute string, we couldn’t resist getting in touch. We always love to see our strings and twines in action. And upon our request, she very kindly took time out of her busy day, to take a few snaps of the early crop and send them over to us.

They look great, right?


Jute twine used to support pea netting


As you can see, our jute twine has been expertly used to support the pea netting inside the polytunnel. And we have it on good authority that it does the job very well. Here’s why.


1. It’s reliable

In her lovely testimonial, Becky mentioned how our natural jute string supported the pea netting, without any breakages throughout the season – and there’s a reason for that!

All of our twines and strings are manufactured to the best possible standards. When you order from us, you can expect consistently high levels of quality and durability. Our jute string is incredibly strong yet soft and flexible, allowing plants to grow to their full potential without causing any damage – or snapping at the first sign of a storm!


2. It’s eco-friendly

Jute twine is a natural product. Not only is it derived from a plant (Corchorus capsularis), which can be grown successfully without the need for pesticides, its production is deemed ‘carbon neutral’ and the final material is 100% biodegradable. Which, for a sustainable agroecological producer such as Whippletree Farm, ranks high on the priority list!

After the twine has fulfilled its purpose, it can be added to the farm’s compost heap – helping to reduce their plastic waste. And in some cases (e.g. when growing tomato plants), this can save a lot of time, as the plants don’t need to be removed from their support before composting.
