Vitamin D3

Hopefully most people have recovered from the nasty flu/ cold viruses going around.
At this time of year we are lacking sunshine and so don't get enough vitamin D from the sunlight.
The NHS website recommends a Vitamin D supplement for certain groups of people and here at the Organic Food & Health Care Shop we have just introduced a Vitamin D3 vegan nutritional supplement to our popular range. Speak to Anne (info@theorganicfarmshop.com / 01751 473444) in the shop for more details.


For a full list of what's in the shop this week see our organic fruit and vegetable price guide.
In the meat/fish department we will have fresh organic beef: braising steak (for casseroles/ stews), ribeye steak; pork chops, lamb mince, bacon & smoked salmon.
We also have frozen chicken and minced beef.


Have a good week!

Recovering from flu

The new year has seen lots of people come down with nasty chest colds and flu. As we recover we must build ourselves up and one way is to make and eat warming vegetable soups.
Coconut oil can be used to saute the vegetables - we have it on special offer. There are claims that coconut oil is good for your heart and a study done by the BBC TV program Trust Me I'm a Doctor found that it did not raise ‘bad’ cholesterol, despite being high in saturated fat. It also seemed to increase ‘good’ cholesterol!


This month has been labelled Veganuary - and this vegan burger looks delicious! We have all the ingredients in the shop - the burger buns will be arrive later in the week.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
Just had a lovely new year message and photo from a cousin announcing the birth of his son on 1st January 2018!
Lovely to see the first Full Moon of the year last night - it's known as a wolf moon named after howling wolves.
You will now be getting back into the swing of things after the festive season. You're probably wanting to start eating a healthier simple diet after all the rich festive food.
Why not try making a warming and nutritious roasted butternut squash soup.
