organically grown produce
£2 for six eggs from organically fed hens
Anton, our smallholding‘s lovely cream legbar cockerel, fed by our grandma, keeping an eye on his organically fed free roaming hens laying delicious eggs.
I am sorry no eggs at the moment from our ducks
Mo with his two girls, Millie and Michele, who are laying one perfect egg almost every day. You boil those for exactly six minutes and the egg white is firm and the yolk is creamy and soft. There are no better eggs than those.
£2 for one enormous GOOSE egg. They are so delicious.
We are laying BIG eggs but only in spring. You need a lot of soldiers when you are boiling them. We have a big fan, a really tall man who wears a long robe on Sundays. Fried up side down with some cheddar on a slice of homemade wholemeal organic bread is Christoph’s absolute favourite.
August 2018 HONEY
This picture shows the bee hives in winter when all the bees are resting and ensuring that their queen is nice and warm. However, they start flying out to collect pollen and nectar as the weather warms up.
£3 for a jar of 2018 honey.
Small bale meadow hay
unsprayed & unfertilised
All our hay is neither sprayed nor fertilised except by our Shetland sheep and alpaca. We have still about 100 bales left from 2016. This makes it perfect for horses, donkeys, and alpacas. Our livestock and that of friends is munching it away every day.
