October 31

The clocks have gone back

The clocks have gone back and it's dark so early! Bonfire night approaches and here's a recipe for Yorkshire Parkin to eat when round the bonfire.
It's also that time of year when we start to think about making Xmas puddings and Xmas cakes and we have all the ingredients in the shop.
We're very excited because from this week we will have a new range of speciality breads made from local(when possible) organic flour . There wil be olive and tomato bread, sourdough wheat bread, focaccia, granary and wholemeal. And on Friday and Saturdays there will be locally baked croissants!
We also have gluten free locally baked cakes: beetroot and chocolate, courgette and date!
In the shop this week we will have fresh and smoked organic salmon and fresh organic chicken. Finally a reminder: please let us have your Xmas poultry orders asap.

It's definitely now Autumn but wasn't it lovely to have a few days of warm sunshine before the temperature dropped!
In the shop this week we have a range of local Autumnal organic produce: brussel sprouts, cauliflowers and leeks. We also have a lovely range of UK organic apples and to celebrate Apple Day on 21st October here's a delicious recipe for Tarte Tatin. We do have frozen organic rough puff pastry but my sister says it's very easy to make your own and here's a Gordon Ramsey recipe.
Halloween will be upon us soon so please put in your order for a local organic pumpkin asap - they are £3.50 each and are 4kg minimum weight.
In the shop this week we will have fresh organic pork sausages and bacon.
And finally we need to start planning for Christmas so please let us have your Turkey orders by 31st October with a £25 non-refundable deposit. Other Christmas poultry, meats and salmon will be available - see the meat price list for details. We have order forms in the shop and available electronically or you can just email us!
