I hope this finds you all happy and well. As we reach Mid Summers Day I find myself wondering when the lovely hot sunny days will arrive. We have enjoyed catering a few events with a maximum of 30 people - the guests have been over the moon to enjoy a taste of normality. The prolonging of restrictions has led to one or two changes to event planning, however no cancellations which is great. Dartmouth has been very busy with a superb half term, and it was lovely to see family’s enjoying themselves whilst on holiday. The Dartmouth Farmers Market is going from strength to strength - Simon and I throughly enjoyed ourselves last week. It was great to see so many customers and friends. The next market will be Saturday 10th July - we hope to see you there!
We are very much looking forward to our friends at Michael Sutton's Cellar, hosting the first of two Parties By The Pond next Saturday (26th June). If you are lucky enough to be going we are offering a grazing box available in two sizes, regular & large. Regular at £22.50 for 2/3 and large at £45 for 4/6. You may prefer to go for a classic fish grazing box with Crab, Prawns, Smoked Salmon and Mackerel Pate. Orders can be placed on our website or over the phone on 01803 411216.
Talking of websites our new site is nearly complete. We are so excited to launch the new site with the focus on 'ease of use' - a definite improvement!
On the home front life is very busy. We have shawn the Alpacas and most of the sheep with only the ewe lambs left to complete. We have had 4 cria (baby alpacas), two male and two female. Everything is growing like mad after a very slow start, my cabbages, broccoli and kale are rocketing with salad bolting like crazy. The grass was cut and bailed last week whilst the sun was out with a race against time before the showers arrived.
As I am sure many of you may have heard, Maggie our dear friend and colleague lost Sid her husband in his fight with MND. Sarah and I made the trip to Scotland last week to pay our respects at his funeral. A celebration of a true gentleman taken far too early by a horrible disease.
Take care keep safe and bon appetit Serin x
