Le Tour de Yorkshire

We've had a lovely few days after all the rain. It's been cold but when the sun's out and the wind drops it's lovely. My older sister and family are up from London and are loving all the daffodils and keep reciting Wordsworth's poem!
They are staying in my younger sister's holiday cottage and I keep getting requests for deliveries of organic produce!
Not long now before the Tour de Yorkshire. The yellow and blue bicycles are appearing on the road sides.
Stage Two of the race marks an important milestone for the Tour de Yorkshire, as the women’s race will be held on exactly the same route as the men’s race.
Stage Three finishes on Scarborough's Marine Drive giving Pickering a miss this year but will generally mean busy roads in the area.
In the shop this week we'll have organic fresh and smoked salmon, kippers, beef mince, braising steak, whole chickens and chicken breasts.
For a full list of what's in the shop this week see our organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
Have a good week!


PS if you or a friend can't come to the shop you can take a virtual tour! You can then email in an order and we will endeavour to deliver it - see our delivery page for details.

April showers, hail, sleet ...!

Easter has been and gone and was cold and wet! It's still school holidays but the forecast for the week isn't good. Hail, sleet - brghh! The museums are going to be busy as families escape the bad weather!
In the shop we are starting to expand our range of herbs and spices including cinnamon leaves, whole mace blade and curry leaves which can be added to any curry and really improve the flavour.
Why not try making a vegetarian curry - there are some lovely recipes here.

organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
My sister has just started renting out a holiday cottage on her horse racing yard below Yedingham - details are here.
This has reminded me that for all those with local holiday cottages we have a flyer for the Organic Farm Shop that you can put in your welcome file.
Holiday renters can also pre-order a welcome pack - please email info@theorganicfarmshop.com for an order form.
Have a good week!
