Autumn Equinox

I did a very long delivery on Saturday! After delivering to customers in York, I parked the van and jumped on a train to London with a joint of organic Tudor pork, a romanesco cauliflower, purple cauliflower and savoy cabbage! I also had a very large suitcase full of my youngest son's winter clothes - he's enrolled on a university course at Birbeck College, London.
The OFS delivery was for my sister who cooked us a lovely organic Sunday roast before I headed back up to Yorkshire on the train. See our facebook page for a photo of her organic Yorkshire puddings!
We have those lovely Romanesco cauliflowers, local Savoy cabbages and local rainbow carrots in the shop this week. We also have fresh and smoked organic salmon - for a full list of all our fresh organic produce go to our latest fruit and vegetable price guide.
Yesterday was the Autumn Equinox when night and day are about equal length. The nights are definitely drawing in!
Have a lovely week!

Organic September

September - schools are back, students are preparing to start/return to college and university and it feels like Autumn!
This means we are starting to see UK apples and lovely Victoria plums in the shop. We also have UK sweetcorn - delicious with butter or olive oil!
It's Organic September and the Soil Association are asking everyone to make a Small Change in our everyday lives in order to make a Big Difference to our food and farming.
So to see a full list of all our fresh organic produce go to our latest fruit and vegetable price guide. We also have fresh organic chicken this week.
North Yorkshire is in the news again because a board has been placed in Robin Hood's Bay at the end of the 190 mile coast-to-coast walk devised by Alfred Wainwright
- see the BBC website for more details.
Have a lovely week!
