With Easter now in site, we will start taking orders for our delicious home produce, including our home baked Hot Cross Buns. Did you know that in Ireland there is a saying “Half for you and half for me, between us two, good luck shall be”! There are plenty more old traditions that can be found about Hot Cross Buns, have a look at this link on Smithsonianmag.
We also make Traditional Simnel Cakes, which are a delight for both Mothering Sunday and Easter.
We have Organic Joints of Beef, Lamb or Pork for a celebratory meal, or even an Easter Ham. Check out Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstalls’ recipe here in the Guardian. Have a look at our flyer to see what we can tempt you with as we dip our toes into Spring.
Brrr! We are in for a few chilly days and nights here in Cornwall, but at least it is dry so we can still get lots of work done on the farm. If you need warming up, why not order one of our scrumptious, homemade, Cornish pasties.
Made to a family recipe, everything from the golden pastry to the juicy, hot, peppery filling is bound to thaw you out. We make traditional steak or cheese and onion, both a firm favourite with our customers.
Let us take the stress out of your Christmas entertaining!
We produce in our farmhouse kitchen, delicious home made seasonal goods, including:
Chutneys, Quiches, Game Pies , Ham and (our Free Range) Egg Pies, Christmas Cakes and Puddings.
Enjoy a joint of Organic Beef, Lamb or a Gammon for your Christmas or New Year celebrations, complimented with our seasonal, organic vegetables.
Getting ready for an action packed weekend at St Mawgan Vintage Rally. Come and visit us and other local producers at our stall in the food tent. We are excited to be introducing our own Organic Hams and Bacon this year!
Here at Gluvian Farm, we are lucky enough to have our own historic orchard, full of seasonal fruit, which has arrived a little early this year. Above are a few windfalls from the ‘Bramley’ (cookers) and ‘Beauty of Bath’ (eaters) trees. We also have ‘Russett’ and ‘Sops of Wine’, the latter is a particularly good cider apple. In addition to these varieties of apples, we also have a very stately ‘Victoria Plum’ tree. Once we have foraged the hedgerows for the big, juicy blackberries we have here, it’s time to get cooking some delicious crumbles, jams and jellies!
Weather forecast is looking good for next week, which means… BEACH! Order your traditional homemade Cornish Pasties for your picnic, our own Organic Burgers for your BBQ and pop by on the way home for a delicious homemade ice cream!
Each year we have our annual inspection from the Food Standards Agency who rigorously check the food hygiene standards of our business. We are delighted to say that we have been awarded five stars today.
References to the Cornish Pasty have been evidenced from the 13th Century and from the 18th Century on-wards, where it was a staple meal in the county, particularly for farm and mine workers as it was a convenient ‘packed lunch’.
Cornish Pasties now have EU Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status, which states the following:
‘A Cornish pasty can only contain beef, potatoes, onions, swede and light seasoning. It must also be prepared or cooked in the Duchy.’
Following a closely guarded recipe used by generations of our family, we make our own pastry and use our own Organic Vegetables and Organic Beef, which now also now meets the new EU PGI status for ‘West Country Beef’. We are even very specific about the way the vegetables are cut and how the ingredients are layered. Hand crimped with love and care and cooked on the farm, they come out of the oven and we then stand them for ten minutes or so – this gives the meat time to rest, the crust to crisp and the gravy produced time to really infuse for that perfect, peppery flavour. We cater from snack size for large events, to our giant pasty on special request. However, if you would like our regular Cornish Pasty, freshly baked, please do order in advance so we can have it ready for you to savour at your preferred time of day!
All in all, our popular Gluvian Farm Cornish Pasty couldn’t get more Cornish!
We bake to order most mornings and produce a variety of our own breads.
These include; white and wholemeal loaves, gluten free, honey and seed, white and wholemeal rolls, scones, Cornish Splits, yeast buns and saffron buns.
The latter three are traditional Cornish treats and we use recipes which have been passed down through generations of our families’ busy farmhouse kitchen.
