Solar eclipse, Richard 3rd and Easter!

What a week we have had! We have passed the Spring Equinox and had an eclipse of the sun. Just found this wonderful photo of the sun, the moon and the international space station at the time of the eclipse.
We are also preparing for the reburial of Richard 3rd. York has announced a number of ceremonies to celebrate this event.
Easter is in 2 weeks time and we have some lovely Booja Booja dairy free organic Easter eggs - see the photo on our Facebook page.
The shop will be open on Good Friday 9:00 - 5:00 and Easter Saturday 9:00 - 4:00 but closed Easter Sunday and Monday.
We had this lovely message from a customer last week:
Hi Anne, We both wanted to say Thank You again for our delivery - it was all lovely. The vegetables in particular were beautifully fresh, and the sausages were the best we've tasted in ages. And the marmalade! Breakfast this morning was delicious. It's made a real difference to our holiday
.

Have a good week!

Spring is in the air & Mother's Day

Spring is in the air! The birds are singing away, there are lots of lovely snowdrops and the crocuses are just about out. My sister in London says that her tete-a-tetes are out but it is a little bit warmer down there and more sheltered in the city. We have the daffodils to look forward to!
Sunday is Mother's Day and why not cook a delicious meal. We will have organic local North Yorkshire lamb in the shop this week so why not try this delicious roast shoulder of lamb with herbs and honey. If you want a vegetarian alternative try tagliatelle with cavolo nero, chickpeas and pecorino. We haven't any cavalo nero in the shop but you can use kale instead.
You could then serve this Raymond Blanc chocolate mousse for dessert. If you would prefer my mother's chocolate mousse recipe that we've used in our family for years email info@theorganicfarmshop.com for the recipe.
See our organic fruit and vegetable price guide for a full list of what's available in the shop this week.
Have a good week!
