About Sir Michael Colman and Ian Margetts
Sir Michael Colman is a specialist farmer in peppermint. The traditional peppermint variety, known as Black Mitcham is now grown on 100 acres on Summerdown Farm in Hampshire by farmer, Ian Margetts. When Sir Michael planted his first crop of Black Mitcham in 1995, peppermint had not been farmed in the UK for over half a century. To his knowledge, he is still the only person to be growing commercial peppermint in the UK and he is one of few farmers world-wide that distils and directly sells pure single estate peppermint oil.
