After a busy festive period it’s time here at Foxholes farm to focus on the year ahead. There is so much emphasis on where our food comes from that it`s important here at foxholes farm to educate our customers as to how we implement good farming ethics and create the best farm produce.
Our farm is booming and looking almost like a maternity ward, over the next few weeks we await early lambing and new born calves, so lots of bedding, love and care is needed to ensure our animals have safe and healthy births.
National breakfast week (24th to 31st of January) is upon us and our Tea Room will be serving up breakfast delights, ‘Shake up your wake up’ will help promote the most important meal of the day.
Our traditional Farmers Full English breakfast is served using our own home reared sausages, bacon and black pudding, with black pudding having been recently listed as one of the best super foods of 2016, you can’t go wrong! The butchery counter is full to the brim for all your breakfast needs and our farm shop pantry is stocked with local jams, marmalades, honey, teas, coffees and of course farm eggs to cook at home, or simply order breakfast from the menu in the tea room, serving seven days a week until 11.30am.

Burns night is around the corner and to celebrate the farm shop butchery will be selling the national dish of lovely fresh HAGGIS! Haggis is one of the most popular dishes served on burns night, a crumbly texture made with fresh sausage meat combined with oatmeal and onions, seasoned with herbs and spices to give a slightly spicy peppery kick full of rustic earthy flavour. It`s been known that Robert Burns himself was a fan of the tasty dish served with lashings of creamy potatoes, turnips and gravy, simply delicious. Haggis is so easy to cook, it just requires heating until piping hot, either by boiling, baking or simply in the microwave, an economical dish and also good for you!
