Autumn Equinox

We've just passed the Autumn Equinox and the nights are drawing in quickly. Mind you we've had some lovely weather over the last few days.
Just heard and read an interesting article about sleep or the lack of it. Matthew Walker is a sleep scientist and says that we are in the midst of a “catastrophic sleep-loss epidemic”.
He says that there are powerful links between sleep loss and Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and poor mental health.
We need our 8 hours sleep and to help us in this we should keep electronic gadgets, mobile phones etc out of the bedroom.


In the shop this week we have some lovely colourful romanesco and graffiti cauliflowers.
For a full list of what's available see our organic fruit and vegetable price guide.


In the meat/fish department we have organic bacon, smoked salmon, beef: mince and braising steak, lamb: mince and chops.
We also have frozen chicken: whole, breasts and thighs, pork sausages, beef mince and salmon.
If you want a particular meat or fish please let us know on the Monday morning.


It's Organic September - visit The Soil Association's website for details.


Have a good week and buy organic!


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.

Organic September

It's now definitely Autumn! Rain and gales are forecast and the nights are drawing in.
Children are back at school and college/university students are preparing for the start of term.
My youngest son is about to move to France with his young family for a language year abroad before returning to finish his degree.
They have all come to visit me before the move so you may meet my little grandson in the shop!


Now to food, we are seeing a range of organic local produce in the shop - bunched beetroot, savoy, white and pointed cabbages and cavalo nero.It's all so fresh and delicious!
