Hello! A very Happy New Year to you. We are back in the shop and on the blog after a much needed winter break.

This week has brought lots of wind and snow. The sun came out on Wednesday and the kale was looking mighty pretty with it's frosty coating. Domino was also enjoying some time playing in the white stuff!

The shop is full of lovely fresh vegetables and fruits. And if you fancy trying something a bit different, why not give these Eryngii mushrooms a go? A full flavoured mushroom, meaty with a tinge of citrus, they are perfect sliced finely and fried in a little butter. Serve on toast with some fresh thyme and a scattering of parmesan. They are also ideal in a mixed mushroom risotto or chopped into a plate of creamy pasta.

The very first of our forced rhubarb has been picked for the shop, so it's time to get making those crumbles! We'll also be taking lots of our rhubarb to Oakwood Farmers Market on Saturday 17 January 2015. Vicky and Heather will be running the stall for the first market of the year and are looking forward to catching up with all our lovely customers there.

Don't forget to stock up with our dry and well seasoned sacks of logs in the farm shop too - keep your home warm and toasty in this cold weather.

Hope to see you soon and thanks for reading.
