Pickering and Le Tour de Yorkshire

We're having a mixture of weather, lovely sunshine and then bitterly cold easterly winds but isn't this a lovely time of year? Trees in blossom and new leaves appearing.
Pickering has reinvented itself with a new website Welcome to Pickering and we have an entry on the shopping page!
The next big event in Pickering is stage 1 of Le Tour de Yorkshire on 1st May.
We are getting very excited and have put up our bunting - see a photo of the shop on our Facebook page.
We love the blue bikes which are appearing on the sides of the roads!
To celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire we will be stocking locally made Pedal Power organic energy bars made from honey, homegrown spelt wheat and oats blended with pumpkin seeds, tangy cranberry and goldenberry.
For a full list of fresh produce in the shop this week see our organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
We will also have fresh organic mince, bacon, cooked ham, gammon steaks, chicken thigh fillets and drumsticks.
Have a good week! We'd love to see your Tour de Yorkshire photos!

Daffodils

Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend. I had my two sons and my daughter-in-law with me. We managed some lovely walks around the village admiring the swathes of daffodils. Always makes me think of Wordsworth's poem
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze ...

We also relaxed and sat out in the garden in short sleeves! My poor sister down on the Kent coast was frozen. They had sea mists and cold easterly winds. The sun did shine for a while on Easter Sunday but not like here!
Yesterday on Radio 4's Food Programme there was a very interesting article on the health benefits of eggs and an interview with Genevieve Taylor author of the egg recipe book A Good Egg. There's a tasty recipe on the Food programme's website for a quick egg brunch. We have fresh organic & local free-range eggs on our href="http://www.theorganicfarmshop.com/pricelists/pricelists2/PricelistVeg.pdf">organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
Hope you have a good week! This lovely weather looks as if it's here for a while.
