Having been focused on the Easter holiday period, lambing, calving and the opening of our Farm Park, life for us here at Foxholes Farm has been fun, but challenging. With new animal enclosures housing our large and small animals and longing for some good weather, our cows and their calves can at least start to finally graze.
This month sees a change in the farm shop, with produce more plentiful and very green, watercress, spinach, spring onions, greens and wild garlic all come into season, along with sweet tender lamb. Our butchers will always cut any meat to any size using their skills and if you would like to bring out the butcher in you, our butchers are hosting a special (last of the season) evening butchery class on Thursday 20th April (although only a few spaces left) you can still book by calling our farm shop. If you’re a lover of beef as we certainly are, we like to champion what we produce here on the farm, especially this time of year by celebrating ‘Great British Beef Week” (23rd-30th April) and for us, producing quality grass fed beef is extremely time consuming, but very rewarding.
Our outdoor seating area is very popular at this time of year, pop in for UK Coffee Week (16th – 22nd) or if you love tea drop in for a cuppa on the 21st April and celebrate National Tea Day, we certainly have a wide selection on offer.
Celebrate all things British on St George’s Day (23rd April); our farm shop is always bursting with British produce. From fresh British vegetables, British fine cheese, local beers, ales and even gin, buying British is best, giving you great quality, freshness and traceability, it is so important to support our British producers (being one myself) and their communities.
Our Farm Park is now open every weekend from 11am – 3pm throughout the summer, meet and feed the animals large or small and explore the great outdoors. We are proud to open up our family working farm with all it has to offer for a Third year and we look forward to seeing you soon here at Foxholes Farm!
