About Guernsey Seaweed

 

The ethos of Guernsey Seaweed is to sustainably pick and harvest seaweed by hand from the beaches of Guernsey and obtain a pure, natural and minimally processed product ready for your garden.

The only automation we use is that we drive a trailer on to the beach – everything else is done by us and by hand and the process involves:

Forking the seaweed from beach to trailer
Picking up the rubbish on the beach as we go
Transporting to our greenhouse to dry on racks
Turning the seaweed to avoid rotting and ensure maximum airflow and retention of precious nutrients
Sorting the seaweed by hand and shredding it to a manageable form and to remove any tough bits
Bagging up and sending it to you
