It’s here, the Great British Pea Week. Now into its third year, this week is all about the celebration of peas and increasing the awareness of the history of the pea, as well as promoting the nutritional benefits that peas can have. Great British Pea Week was launched by the Yes Pea! Campaign.
Harvesting The Pea
With the average person in Britain eating 9,000 peas a year, peas need to be grown and harvested. There are around 700 British pea farmers and over 2 billion portions of peas are harvested each summer!
