About the brand
Nick Saltmarsh, Josiah Meldrum and William Hudson founded Hodmedod in 2012 to supply beans and other products from British farms.
We work with British farms to source a range of top quality ingredients and delicious foods. We’re particularly interested in searching out less well-known foods, like the fava bean – grown in Britain since the Iron Age but now almost forgotten – and black badger peas.
The Great British Beans project
We founded Hodmedod following the successful Great British Beans trial project to stimulate and assess demand for indigenous pulses.
For the trial project we bought a tonne of British-grown split fava beans, packed them up at the kitchen table, and distributed them through community groups and local shops. Each pack contained a postcard with a short questionnaire on the back to collect feedback on the beans.
The response to the beans was overwhelmingly positive, inspiring us to establish Hodmedod to continue and develop supply of British-grown fava beans and other products.
