Christmas Time at the Farm

Hello there!

Due to being a bit under the weather this week our blog post is a little late. But we wanted to remind you all that we are open on Tuesday 22 December (8am - 4pm) and on Christmas Eve (8am - 12.30pm) and then we will be closed until Wednesday 7 January 2015. So make sure you get in and stock up with lots of our lovely veggies asap!

If you are looking to try something different for your Christmas dinner, then why not give sprout tops a go? Tom Kerridge has been cooking them over on his BBC Christmas television programme alongside chestnuts as a cracking side dish. You can check out the recipe here. We have lots of lovely sprout tops available in the farm shop alongside sprout stalks and loose sprouts. If you are needing some more inspiration for cooking these little green gems, then please do check out our previous post here.

We also have freshly harvested potatoes for your roasting pan. If you haven't tried our Edzell Blues then you are in for a real treat. They have a violet-blue skin, white flesh and a floury texture. Best cooked in duck or goose fat, they don't need to be parboiled. Just pour boiling water over them, let them sit for about a minute, drain, then tip into your roasting pan. They make the perfect roast potato and you'll be giving your guests the best Christms dinner they will ever have!

And of course we have all your other favourite winter vegetables and fruits in the shop too as well as sacks of well seasoned, dry logs.

Thank you for all your support this past year. We wish you a very Merry Christmas!
