We were Europe’s first importer of Butternut Squash back in the 90s, when founder Peter Barfoots discovered the super vegetable on his travels and saw an opportunity for the UK market.
Abundant in sweet, nutty flavour, with a creamy texture, they’re versatile and easy to cook, you can eat the whole squash, and they last for months, helping reduce waste too.
Butternut squash is an excellent source of provitamin A carotenoids, vitamin C, B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, and manganese. It’s also rich in fibre.
Butternut squash plants are very tender and grow best in warm climates with well-drained and fertile soils. For decades we’ve worked in partnership with growers around the world to meet the growing demand of this wondrous vegetable.
We grow butternut squash in Argentina, Greece, Portugal, South Africa and Barfoots Senegal.
