Hello barneyj

I've found you two farmers who grow sea kale commercially in the UK,
where it is fairly well-known to food enthusiasts.

Alexander Pattullo, Eassie Farm, Glamis, DD8 1SG

"One of the joys of living in Angus is my proximity to the only
commercial producer of sea kale in Great Britain. As the name suggests
it grows well in coastal regions; it is perennial so if you happen to
come across some guard your secret and enjoy annual feasts.
Sandy and Heather Pattullo farm at Eassie (near the Glamis Estate) in
Angus where they grow sea kale in long tunnels."
Supplier:  Sandy Pattullo, Eassie Farm, Glamis, DD8 1SG

"Eassie Farm supplies beautiful asparagus and sea kale."

Contact information:

Michael Paske, The Estate Office, Honington, Lincolnshire, NG32 2PG 

"Michael Paske [...] who cultivates asparagus, sea kale and globe artichokes"

"Mr Michael Paske is Director of Michael Paske Farms Ltd and NFU
Services Ltd. He holds other directorships in agriculture and
agriculture related businesses."

Contact details for Michael Paske Farms:

" . . sea kale is now only commercially produced in the midlands."

I tried to track down a producer in France after finding what looked
like a good lead from a French researcher whose work was published
around 1990 in the US. However, it's possible his projects fizzled
out, since I found nothing but French webpages saying sea-kale is
grown in England.

"Commercial production has been carried out in several parts of the
north of France since 1988 after preliminary experimental trials in
Brittany (1985) and the Loire Valley (1987)."
