Our story

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!
