OK, even the optimist in me would have to admit that the weather this weekend will, at best, be “changeable” but there are still many good reasons to visit the farm…
You might wish to stock up on our delicious fruit and vegetables – most things are in full flight now and the shop is bursting with currants, berries and plums (both Mirabelle and the Rivers Early Prolific) but also lettuces, cucumbers, baby beetroot, chard and our first flush of Padron Peppers!
We also have exceptionally good seafood up from Cornwall – the markets were not good this week but we managed to get some fantastic stock. Cock Crabs continue their great run, Plaice are perfect, Mussels from St Austell are plump and sweet and, for the first time this year, Sardines haver returned to Cornish Waters. We may not be able to offer the full Portuguese experience but our Sardines are sublime, served with a Watercress Salad and Gooseberry Relish!
So although the whole might be improved by another 10 or 20 degrees of sunshine, plates of Padrons and Sardines followed, perhaps, by a Blackcurrant Pavlova, the whole washed down with our zesty German Pinot Gris might be just the job for those of us who haven’t already fled to the South.
Tables are still available for lunch today or tomorrow and we are also open this evening if you fancy dinner.
The whole team look forward to greeting you.
