Early Signs Of Spring

Updated: Feb 24

The best news since I last wrote is I had my first jab just over two weeks ago. There is now an air of positivity around with the news of a road map out of lockdown, and a distinct possibility of a normal summer ahead. A steady stream of friends, family and customers are also being called up for their jabs so plenty to look forward to.

As we approach the end of February, our next special event will be a Mothers Day Feast @ Home delivered on Friday 12th March, (not only limited to Mothers). To compliment this we are also offering a Mothers Day Grazing Box as an alternative, great for sharing or indulgent for one. Both will be available for delivery to Totnes and Kingsbridge, along with everywhere in between.

Mothers Day Feast @ Home, minimum 2 covers, £27.50 per person and delivered Friday 12th March. STARTER Bloody Mary Prawn Cocktail for 2 - Classic prawn cocktail with a twist of Vodka, tabasco and horseradish served with crisp lettuce, sour dough toasts and a wedge of lemon. or Baked Camembert for 2 - French camembert ready to bake with garlic, rosemary and white wine, served with confit red onion and sourdough bread ready to toast.

We are looking forward to getting out and about this year. Our friends at The Coastal Kitchen will be running a Producer's Table event in the Market Square Dartmouth in May (date to follow, will keep you posted) - hope to see you there.

We are fast approaching the one year anniversary of Covid in our lives and a year since I started shielding with my parents on the farm. We moved the last of the ewes to the barn on Sunday ready for lambing to commence around the 1st March. We have two Lambers coming to work, one during the days and the other working nights, and my girls are rather excited with the prospect of bottle fed lambs. Planting has started in the veggie garden - garlic, shallots and asparagus this weekend. Salad seed will be sown in the greenhouse next weekend ready to transplant out as it warms up. My cauliflowers failed this winter but we have been eating kale and cabbage, I am really looking forward to harvesting my purple sprouting broccoli any minute.

Keep safe and well, Serin x
