Why use Greendale?
Why Greendale seafood is best
At Greendale we’re only interested in selling the best to our customers. Because we have our own fishing fleet, we can supply our fish counter with regular fresh catches that can be traced directly back to the sea. Operating in accordance with the Seafood Responsible Fishing Scheme, our boats work out of Exmouth, Brixham and Newlyn, and catch a variety of fish from Westcountry waters; a catch can often be on its way to the Greendale farm shop within hours of leaving the sea. If we can’t catch it ourselves, we source only from trusted suppliers with standards as high as our own, and we take great pride in ensuring that a delicious variety is always to be found on our fish counter.
At Greendale we have our own fishing fleet, which means we can supply our fish counter with regular fresh catches that can be traced directly back to the sea. Our boats work out of Exmouth, Brixham and Newlyn, and catch a variety of fish from Westcountry waters; for example, our potting vessel, Becci of Ladram, keeps us well topped up with a selection of fresh fish and shellfish, while the Emily J, our scallop boat, is based in nearby Exmouth.

Eating Seasonally: Whiting
Abundant in the waters of the West Country.
Whiting stocks are currently deemed sustainable; responsible fishing means that stock levels are healthy, making Whiting an environmentally sound choice. Whiting is much less well known than Cod, but both fish are from the same ‘family’ – in fact, the main difference is the price (Whiting is noticeably cheaper). Whiting has white, delicate-tasting flaky flesh, and works really well as a substitute for its larger cousin in fish pies, soups and many other recipes. It can be fried, baked, steamed, poached and grilled, and its mild flavour makes a great introduction to fish for children or fussy eaters.
Our knowledgeable fishmongers are experts in preparing and cooking everything on the fish counter, from Plaice to Lobster and beyond. Skilled at filleting and de-boning, they’re responsible for
getting each daily catch ready for sale as it arrives fresh from our boats. Online shoppers can make great use of this expertise, too, because all the fish in the Greendale farm shop is also sold on our website, available in the same wide range of cuts and whole fish.
