August on the farm


Hello! Apologies for the lack of updates, but Summer is a busy time for us with planting and harvesting. (And the never ending watering - even when it's been raining!). Hopefully we'll have a little more time to show you what we've been up to around the farm and in the nursery in the coming weeks and months!

Our farm is bursting with lots of lovely produce - cucumbers are growing happily in the poly tunnel and we have four different varieties for you to try in our farm shop. Our aubergines and chillies are coming along nicely too and this year we're also harvesting our own Okra (image 5). Not sure what to do with it? Well, it's perfect in curries, like this one or try it in some of these suggestions from the BBC food site.

We've also started picking these beautiful purple beans (image 2).  You won't find these in any supermarket, but we're selling them in the farm shop in small punnets. Perfect to add a little colour and flavour to your evening meal. Boil or steam them alongside some of our glorious new potatoes.

We are open Wednesday - Sunday 10am - 4pm (Saturdays open at 9.30am). You can see a full list of what we are currently harvesting on the right hand side of this page. We look forward to seeing you in the farm shop soon.
