Easter and the spring equinox

Yesterday was the Spring (vernal) equinox. Here in the Northern Hemisphere it is also known as the March equinox. My daughter is currently in the Southern Hemisphere where it's called the "autumnal (fall) equinox" and the days will start to draw in.
Here in North Yorkshire in the Northern Hemisphere we will now have longer days of daylight, even longer than my sister in London.
Don't forget that we change the clocks on Saturday night!
It's Easter this weekend and we will have a range of organic fish, chicken and meat. If you want an organic meat joint for Easter please order now! We will also have Hot Cross buns (with and without sugar) - please order now!
For a full list of what's in the shop this week see our organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
Please note that the shop will be closed on Easter Monday.
Happy Easter!

Fairtrade Fortnight

It's March and has now turned very cold. We had a covering of snow this morning but it's supposed to be warming up at the weekend. Just in time for the Flying Scotsman's visit to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway! How exciting! It's refurbishment has been so popular that all seats are booked. My sister and her young son who is mad about trains have got tickets!
It's International Women's Day on Tuesday and Fairtrade Fortnight.
This year the Fairtrade Foundation is promoting Fairtrade products for your breakfast - bananas, coffee, muesli etc. We have a good range of Fairtrade products in the shop - do please come and buy and support this very worthy cause.
For a full list of what's in the shop this week see our organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
Have a good week.
