Ta-dah! Our lovely little farm shop has finally opened its doors for the season. I couldn't be more pleased. I love my little shop. It is filled with lots of lovely things that represent lots of hard work by lots of different people. Its also an opportunity for me to meet my customers, catch up with friends and occasionally have a sneaky peak at a book.
I have always tried to keep the shop full of things grown and produced from the farm. From veg and flowers to jam and cake, everything has always come from these two hands. But now that my time is more limited, and I have given myself focus, I am proud to say I have actually let go a little and branched out a little, supplying free range eggs from the amazing people at Dinton Farm and lovely organic, seasonal vegetables from our local supplier. (and when I say local, I mean LOCAL), and occasional plants from Northend Nursery.
That said, I bake all the cakes, make all the jams and ALL the flowers supplied in the shop are grown, cut and arranged by myself. Although it has been a really hard Spring, with very little ready to be cut now, I take great pride in what we are trying to accomplish here and I will find it very rewarding when later in the season people will ask, "did you grow ALL these flowers" and I can proudly say "YES!".
So come by and say hi and see what is coming into bloom. Fridays 3pm to 6:30pm and Saturdays 9am-12pm.
