A mouth watering selection this weekend at the farm.
First and foremost we have an excellent new seafood supplier – based in Cornwall, and with a commitment to sourcing day-fresh fish from the inshore, day boat fleet out of Brixham, Newlyn and Plymouth, we hope to continue our tradition of serving glistening fresh seasonal seafood from the Cornish Coast. This week we have taken delivery of fabulous Cock Crabs, Plaice and Monkfish. You can order these items for click and collect, delivery or in the restaurant.
Also on the menu this week, we have our first wild fungi of the year – our forager has found a dramatically large, tender and delicious Chicken of the Woods Fungus. More usually found later in the summer, they do occasionally grow from early May onwards. Individual “brackets” will be on sale in the shop and in the restaurant where we will serve it braised in butter, cream and paprika on sourdough toast.
A reminder that we are now open on Saturdays from 10am to 11pm throughout the summer. You can join us for an early evening cocktail or dinner. Tables will be inside or in the gardens depending on temperature and your inclination. All Saturday evenings are now bookable except where we have a Worton Nights event – the next of these is on 28th May when we will serve a dinner to compliment a talk by Colin Tudge – a long time friend of the farm, author, journalist and co-founder of the Oxford Real Farming Conference. Colin, one of the key figures in the Agro-ecological farming movement in the UK, is an informed, perceptive and entertaining speaker and we are looking forward to a fascinating evening as he talks to the subject – FOOD, FARMING, AND THE GREAT RE-THINK .

We look forward to welcoming you to the farm again this week, whether you come to shop, to breakfast, to lunch or, on Saturday, for dinner.
