Shrove Tuesday, was traditionally the last chance to each a range of forbidden foods over the Christian period of Lent, leading up to Easter. Our free range, lovely ladies, have not let the winter slow them down and have been laying a plenty. Our customers really can taste the difference! Try our eggs in this traditional British pancake recipe from deliaonline.com.
One of our homemade family favourites at any time of year, but a particularly economic and warming comfort food during the winter months. We use our own organic beef mince and organic vegetables, hope you enjoy our recipe. Our measurements are down to personal preference!
- Peel and chop potatoes, carrots and swede or turnip. Boil until tender. Add butter, milk and season. Mash and leave to cool.
- Meanwhile, brown mince and onion, add finely chopped garlic and season with salt and pepper. Add a dollop of tomato puree and some thyme (fresh is best, but dried also good). We make our own beef stock, but organic stock is readily available. Add the stock and cover with water, bring to the boil, stirring until it thickens to a gravy. Remove from heat. Again, leave to cool a little (we sometimes leave until the next day as the flavour intensifies).
- Transfer to an oven proof dish. Top the mince with the mash and grate some organic full bodied cheddar cheese on top.
- Put in a medium oven until heated through and cheese is bubbling. Enjoy with fresh, seasonal, organic vegetables!

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.
The first of our Organic Yellow Tomatoes are ripe and ready. Did you know that this variety are sweeter and less acidic than their red cousins? Try them in a tart or in a soup, such as this tasty recipe from Epicurious.
A great way to use our Organic onions and Free Range Eggs. You can also control the calories by adding or omitting pastry and using cream or milk. Really easy to prepare and easy on the purse strings!
This has the taste of a ‘Gastro’ dish, yet again is so simple to make and uses all local, seasonal, produce. This recipe contains ingredients for two, so you can double, triple or quadruple according to how many you are feeding! Perfect to cheer your winter taste buds while waiting for the spring buds.
We would like to thank the Padstow Brewing Company for kindly supplying the fine ale!
Another simple and tasty supper idea using seasonal, Cornish produce.
This recipe is so simple, tasty, healthy, warming and best of all, great on a budget. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do – great to prepare on a Sunday evening, put it all together in the slow cooker on low overnight, and by morning you have a delicious stew. We always stand our stews for at least a few hours (refrigerate if needed), as we feel this gives the flavours time to infuse. Perfect for an easy Monday night supper.
No better soup (in our opinion) to kick start your New Year detox. In season, delicious and full of goodness. Here is our recipe using our Organic Vegetables.
