    We source most of our carrots from local farms about 4 miles from us. Carrots straight from these farms with the dirt still on always taste best they even smell different. John is one of our main suppliers. I first met him at school when I was about 11 and even then it was plain that John’s passion was farming. Today he works the family farm Soup vegetables and Cabbages. with the help of hi...

    Our Grapefruit

    Grapefruit is disliked by many and I do not blame you on occasions. Some fruits are quite fibreous which makes them chewy. Also they are sour.

We frequently see pictures of perfect shiney yellow balls and with this picture in mind that is what we buy. We have forgotten this food grows in the natural wo...

    Golden Kiwi Fruit

    I like the green kiwi but I find these golden ones much more interesting because they are great for desserts and sweeter too.

This farm is really about producing good free range turkey for Christmas and Gooses as well. All the birds are freedom-range and enjoy access to lush acr...

In fact we could say "King Of the Greens". That said - How do you cook it? Simply tear the green leaf from the white leaf rib, rinse to clean and you are ready to cook. Either steam and chop or shred and stir fry. The distin...
