Whether your living local or simply passing through Hertfordshire, you must make a visit to the award winning Foxholes Farm Shop. Situated 5 minutes from Hertford town centre with easy parking facilities and boasting a beautiful tea-shop showcasing local produce, together with a safe children’s play area, Foxholes farm has it all.
Proprietor Catherine Smith stocks the most fantastic local and regional produce alongside her own grass fed home-reared cows and free-range animals producing some of the tastiest meat in Hertfordshire showcasing what’s on offer from farm to fork.
The delicatessen features traditional fine cheeses with home cooked cold meats, pies and quiches with an accompanying selection of pantry goodies, fresh salads and vegetables, perfect for those summer days out and picnics.
With the BBQ season nearly upon us one of the main stars of the show this summer is the farms mouth-watering selection of fresh BBQ meats from the butchery counter. Creating simple dishes using more economical cheaper cuts of meat has never been easier, so you can make your own tasty in-expensive dishes.
Feast your eyes on a great selection of marinated and glazed meats with a mix of different herbs and spices. These marinades and spices really do tenderize meat nicely and are great for grilling, creating the most succulent taste. Try the tender sweet lamb glazed with garden mint giving a sweet, refreshing flavour, or zesty lemon pepper sprinkled over tender cuts of chicken. For your pork dishes try the ever so popular Chinese rub made from a selection of Chinese spices with a hint of star anise for that oriental feel. Try the tender Kofta kebabs giving a subtle reminder of Mediterranean Holidays from days gone by. For the more adventurous try hot and spicy Cajun flavour, marinated in spices such as oregano, cayenne pepper and hot paprika to give a smoky peppery taste or the mouth watering Tex-Mex, a combination of mixed spices with jalapeno and limes for a Mexican flavour. There are traditional favourites like smoky BBQ, for a sweet taste with tomato and herbs or the ever so aromatic rosemary and garlic, we have flavoursome meats to suit everyone.
Using blends of quality sourced herbs and seasonal ingredients Foxholes Farm butchery will help get your BBQ off to a sizzling start and get your taste-buds buzzing this summer.
The professional butchers at the counter will give advice on how to cook these incredible cheaper cuts of meat either with instructions on how to grill or cook over hot coals. This just proves that using home produced local cuts of meat can be full of flavour and simple to use. Great for entertaining and sharing with your family and friends.
