The apple of my eye…

I’ve had my eye on this little bad boy for a while. It’s a survivor! In farming, we are often at the mercy of nature, and late this spring we suffered gales which took a few of our fledgling apples off. The effects of the unseasonable weather can be seen all over the local area on windward hedges, where it scalded the spring growth leaves. Very unusual. However, we are still expecting a decent crop as we had a bumper blossom in the orchard and local, industrious bees were busy pollinating whilst collecting the sweet rewards. We will have both ‘eaters’ and ‘cookers’, all juicy and delicious heritage varieties which the family have been ‘scrumping’ for generations. In addition to being available in the farm shop, we will use them in our home produce, including our farm house kitchen jams, jellies and chutneys, except for this one – this one’s mine!

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.

A taste of Spring

20170215_153520

The past week we were blessed with some glorious weather in Cornwall. It was so beautiful that we couldn’t help ourselves getting a bit excited about enjoying the stunning outdoors which we live in. A warm and crackling fire took the chill off the air, and we threw some of our tasty organic sausages and potatoes on top for a scrumptious, simple, supper.

Nothing beats eating outdoors, with the scent of wild garlic just about to burst through the carpet of wild violets and snowdrops in the orchard, and the late winter sun teasing us with the prospect of a new season.
