Very last Seville oranges of the season: just a few kilograms left (£2.50 a kg). We have proof they make excellent marmalade. Two prize-winning entrants to the Dalemain Marmalade Festival used them – one bronze and one gold! Congratulations to you both.
New this week: Bonus Spring Onions. Two bunches for £2.
We have eight varieties of apples but one has always been more prone to apple scab than all the others. So this year we enlisted the help of Niall Wildewoode who re-grafted the poor variety’s rootstocks with scions from Red Topaz trees – one of the best we have. This is a clever way of replacing poor varieties without losing the trees all together. Niall can do this kind of work for you if you have a variety of apple that is disappointing.

At Low Luckens (polytunnels and outdoor vegetables). Sundays 10.30 AM – 12.30 PM and Wednesdays 2.30 PM – 4.30 PM. Current activities include: sowing, preparing soil, planting and harvesting. If you volunteer on Wednesday afternoons at Low Luckens you will be able to make use of our farm shop. There are lots of bargains to be had including pick-your-own veg and produce we didn’t put in the boxes that week. Of course you don’t have to be volunteering to enjoy the shop.
