Beta Glucan

What a lot of rain over the last two weeks! I really felt sorry for all those attending music and art festivals.
My sister went to the Curious Arts Festival with her choir and it poured down a lot of the time. She was glamping (posh camping) so didn't get too wet!
If you haven't visited the shop recently just to let you know that we are building up our range of health supplements* and over the next few weeks will highlight some of the most popular ones.
This week we'll look at Beta Glucan.
Beta Glucan is derived from brewers yeast and made from the outer wall of the yeast. It naturally pushes up the immune system, to help us fight viruses, infections and age-related diseases such as arthritis.
It has also been found to help dogs, cats and horses.


If you need any more information Dr Christopher Hertzog will be in the shop soon to discuss the supplements - date to follow.


For a full list of fruit and vegetables in the shop this week see our organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
In the meat/fish department we have organic beef mince, braising steak, smoked salmon and bacon.
We also have frozen chicken: whole and breasts, pork sausages and salmon.
If you want a particular meat or fish please let us know on the Monday morning.


Have a good week!

Strawberries for Wimbledon

Update on my IT woes - my laptop is now fixed and I'm just about back to normal. One doesn't realise how much we depend on technology!
We are now into July and almost the beginning of the holiday season. Visitors are starting to arrive in Pickering to be greeted by wonderful floral displays. The flower beds in Eastgate Square are lovely.
If you have a special occasion coming up or just fancy having an organic cake made for you then Cathryn, our baker, is taking orders.
We had a delicious cheese cake in the shop last week that she'd made with organic ingredients.
It's Wimbledon fortnight and we've delicious local spray-free strawberries and raspberries to enjoy whilst watching Andy Murray!
