Pea Harvest

Our peas are harvested between July and August every year and, with the average Brit eating 9,000 peas per year on average, it's not as simple as you might think!

There are approximately 700 British pea farmers working up and down the country. 

You can meet some of them here.

Over 2 billion portions of peas are harvested each summer from 35,000 hectares of land - that's about 70,000 football pitches!

This produces 160,000 tonnes of delicious frozen peas.

The majority of freshly frozen garden peas and petit pois are frozen within 150 minutes of being picked, which locks in those all-important nutrients!
