March 28


Spring is now here - we've had the Vernal Equinox and changed our clocks to British Summer Time. What's new in the shop this week:
UK Rhubarb - a native of Siberia which thrives in the wet cold winters especially in the "Yorkshire triangle"! We love Rhubarb Crumble with Soya Custard at the Organic Farm Shop!
Organic meat and pork pies - very popular, so put in an order to avoid disappointment.
Hot cross buns.
See the up-to-date pricelist for our full range of fruit and vegetables.
ps some lovely lamb recipes on the BBC website.
