As we head into early summer we look forward to great food, great weather and plenty of produce.
Our farm is on target for its first silage cut, making sure every step of the growing process gives us good quality grass. As our machines cut through the fields we try to tailor our grass by growing the right variety which helps animal health.
After a three year break we’ll be opening our farm on Sunday 9th June for ‘Leaf Open Farm Sunday 2019’. It’s the annual farming industry’s open day offering visitors a chance to discover a real working farm, see how our food is produced and why British farming needs its support. Our doors will be open from 11.00am to 3.00pm with lots of activities including tractor rides, butchery demos, gun dog displays, stalls and even our own fun pet dog show giving you the chance to show off your beloved pooch, register on the day from 11.00am.
Enjoy a family day out this Father’s Day on Sunday 16th June 2019, we know our dads are fabulous so celebrate with them here at Foxholes Farm, explore the Hertfordshire countryside and bring dad for a few hours of fun on the farm! Dads can gain FREE ENTRY to our Farm Park when accompanying one full paying child.
Enjoy the best of British this season, as a local family run shop we know how important it is to bring good produce from the field to the table. Broad beans, spinach, new potatoes, asparagus, radishes, gooseberries, raspberries and strawberries are all in season, adding colour and flavour to all your early summer dishes.
The deli counter has lots of delightful offerings all baked in-house from scotch eggs, pasties and pies to quiches along with a selection of cooked meats ready for the picnic season.
