April 24

Hottest London Marathon on record

Following on from our last blog - what a week! Amazing weather! The London Marathon was the hottest on record. Now back to normal April weather.
I'm getting the house ready for the return of my son and family. The cat won't know what's happening with a young person chasing after her!
My sisters seem to be very busy sending each other old family photos for a Sleightholme cousin get-together in Guildford. I think this has been sparked off by the 100th anniversary of the brutal battle of Passchendaele, in which we very sadly lost two great uncles.


Back to the shop - I've just read an article about how good fermented food is for you. We sell a selection: kombucha, a refreshing and deliciously wild fermented beverage, ginger and turmeric kombucha, red sauerkraut and more besides. Do come and browse.

For a full list of what's in the shop see our organic fruit and vegetable price guide.

In the meat/fish department we will have fresh organic: bacon, cooked ham and smoked salmon.


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

Not wonderful weather for the Easter weekend. It picked up yesterday with cheering sunshine but we're now back to showers and easterly winds. As I drive through the villages on my way home it lifts my heart to see all the daffodils. No wonder Wordsworth wrote about them! I also love the spring flowers in Eastgate Square and at the bottom of the main street.

In the shop this week we have fresh asparagus from Italy. It's not in season for long and is delicious steamed and served with olive oil or a dab of butter. We also have lovely cauliflowers - why not try this delicious warming cauliflower soup by one of our famous local chefs!

In the meat/fish department we will have fresh organic: beef mince; leg of lamb; pork sausages; bacon, cooked ham and smoked salmon.


Just to let you know that Dr Christopher Hertzog will be in the shop on Wednesday 18th April to discuss our very popular health care supplements and answer any queries you may have.
