A very damp, yet warm welcome to May’s Newsletter. April certainly proved to be a new record breaker but for quite the opposite reasons than March. Yes we still have a drought but the crops and grass are growing so the animals are loving it.
The Summer , the keeping it a British Theme has been helped by some fantastic very traditional accompaniment sauces and the fantastic ’Corker Crisps’ range from Cambridgeshire. Hopefully May shall be a warm and sunny one, as events wise it is a busy month. The whole of May is British Asparagus month extra special and for such a short while—enjoy it while you can.
This May only enjoys one bank holiday this year. National cucumber day is the 12th and national Sweet Pepper day is the 16th, National B.B.Q week falls over the last weekend in May and into June. We shall be holding a market stall in the Waltham Abbey grounds again this year which is on the 12th following their 1st annual cucumber festival success last year. We cant wait.
Do come along for a family fun day. Our new Chef/Butcher Glen has settled in extremely well, making fantastic quiches, Duck scotch eggs, homemade scones and jam as well as brightening up the deli and cheese counter with his personality and style.
The main event for us this Month is our first open day of 2012 (we shall be unable to attend the Wheathamstead Farmers Market and the Hatfield House this May). We have given this Open day a Vintage Theme. From the lovely Vintage Market Stalls (inside just in case) to our vintage farm Caravan, tractors and machinery. A Saddleback Hog Roast, Vintage crockery and ice cream van, route master buses, fun and games galore.
As always parking and entrance are free. Come along and enjoy the fun more news to follow. Then finally on Saturday 26th May Oscar from the new fantastic Duchess oil (Rapeseed) company in Sawbridgeworth following our sell out first delivery will be coming along for a demonstration tasting day come along and try the English oil.
Look forward to seeing you soon.
