As promised, we’re offering a selection of roots and herbs bonus bags – and the herbs come free! Why not add one to your regular box? Butternut squash and sage: £2. Sweet potato and rosemary: £2. Parsnip, garlic and rosemary: £2. However, the herbs are under a foot of snow at the moment which may limit supplies – so get your order in quick!
We re-use them so thanks for returning them. To prevent them getting spoiled in bad weather, lots of customers leave out sturdy plastic boxes to protect the produce and the empties. Perhaps you could consider that if you don’t do it already.
Enjoy a Pancake Family Fun Day at Slack House Farm (home of Birdoswald Cheese) on Tuesday 17th February
9.30 AM to 12 noon. Start by milking the cows and finish by eating your pancakes! £5 per child. Accompanying adult free. Please book in advance. Contact Dianne: 07900472342; Dianne@slackhousefarm.plus.com
We still have some Seville oranges for marmalade-making. The price is £3 per kg.
Lots – but most of it isn’t growing so we’re going to have to give it a rest until the weather warms up. Some good news: repairs to the storm-damaged polytunnel got underway this week although the weather will have to calm down a bit before we can get the new polythene on.
We have winter vegetables direct from an organic farm in East Lothian: green cabbage, red cabbage, white cabbage, leeks, celeriac, carrots, beetroot and Brussels sprouts. The Cumbrian potatoes are Maris Peer and we have swedes from the same grower. We also have English parsnips, kohl rabi and onions as well as pomegranates and clementines from Spain.
We have 25 different box types and they may or may not contain the items listed above. If you would like to receive any of them, let us know by Friday of the previous week and, if stocks (and the value of the box) allow, we’ll include them in your box.
