Hello January and Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe 2018 is here already after such a busy December wrapping bespoke hampers for customers and getting all of the Christmas orders ready. We hope you all enjoyed the festive period as much as we all did and the novelty of eating turkey sandwiches hasn’t worn off yet.

 

We have a fantastic month ahead of us with some great promotions in our farm shop and butchery to try:

For January these are:

  • Pate of the Month 10% off – Welsh Dragon Was £3.30 per 100g, Now £2.97 per 100g

This fiery venison pate jumps with a spice packed pungency. The rich ochre, lightly herb dabbled with teasing red chilli marries with the rich game liver to give full warming aromatic experience. A perfect partner for a hearty beer.

  • Cheese of the Month 10% off – Red Storm Cheddar Was £2.45 per 100g, Now £2.21 per 100g

Red Storm has a sweet and surprisingly complex flavour, a vintage red aged for 18 months with a crystalline nutty texture throughout. Perfect in a ham & mustard sandwich or provides a great amber colour melted over chicken or steak

  • Spirit of the Month 25% off – Longflint Cocktails Was £4.50 per bottle, Now £3.37 each

Longflint sits at the intersection of craft beer and craft spirits and is produced in Tottenham, London. Using pure fruit juices, infused simple syrups and tinctures plus top quality British craft spirits they create drinks that surprise and delight.

Choose from:

  • Rhubarb & Vodka Seltzer
  • Ginger & Rum Fuego
  • Rose Hip & Gin Fizz

 

We also run a range of other promotions throughout the shop, often accompanied by tasters to allow you to ‘try before you buy’. 

Our fantastic promotions are as follows: ​

  • 25% off Cottage Delight Dips. Choose from Salmon, Garlic & Chive or Stilton. Was £3.75 each, Now £2.82
  • Cottage Delight 340g - Orange Marmalade, Sweet Apple Chutney, Raspberry Jam or Caramelised Onion Chutney. Was £3.45, Now £1.95
  • 2 for £5 Allioli Dips. Choose from Garlic, Herbs, Chilli or Mediterranean £2.95 each
  • 2 for £5 Merangz Drops - Rainbow Fruit, Chocolate or White Chocolate & Raspberry £3.25 each

 

Our butchery will also be providing tasters on selected days of their low-fat Chicken, Sage & Onion Sausage with a 2% fat content.

Made with 100% chicken breast, these sausages are a great way to meet those New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier!

Also available as a gluten free variety in the freezer located in the farm shop. For more information please ask a member of our friendly butchery team.

News

Love Pork are running a campaign, Pick Pork Medallions from Monday 8th January until Sunday 25th January to promote the health benefits of eating low fat pork medallions. Over the next few weeks we will be sharing recipe ideas and cooking tips using our own delicious home reared pork!

 

How to cook perfectly pork medallions

1 – Bash between cling film to 1cm thickness using a rolling pin to avoid over or under cooking

2 – Marinate for 10 minutes (or the night before) for extra flavour

3 – Sear and Bake. Fry on one side for 3 minutes, turn over and oven bake for 6-8 minutes at 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4

4  - Rest for a couple of minutes after cooking and ensure the meat juices run clear

5 – Serve and enjoy!
