You Have Goat to be Kidding Me!

A customer came in recently to ask if we could source some goat.  He was met with a slight look of disbelief, not because it was an outrageous request or because it was impossible to fulfil.  It’s just that goat has never been part of our culture and as a nation we tend to be … Read more

The British love a BBQ!

As we celebrate National Barbecue Week and look forward to a scorching weekend ahead, we expect the air will soon be filled with the smell of sizzling meats.  Even if it’s not sunny, we’ll still enjoy a few al fresco beverages and get our pasty white legs out, determined to get into the spirit.  At … Read more

It’s British Sandwich Week and we are on a Roll

Quite possibly the greatest British culinary invention is being celebrated 20th-26th May and so it should be!  People come from all over the world just to experience an afternoon nibbling on dainty, crustless finger sandwiches filled with a thin layer of cucumber because that’s what they think us eccentric/civilised Brits do at 3pm every day. … Read more

Lamb is for life and not just for Easter!

This is such a brilliant time of year for food and all the wonderful ingredients that Spring brings. For many people, lamb is the hero of the Easter feast.  It certainly was for us, although we had definitely not expected to be cooking it on the bbq in such tropical conditions.

For a while beef was labelled as the bad boy of the nutritional world and blamed as a cause for a host of chronic diseases.  Environmentalists have also taken a dim view of it but we think that’s a load of old bull! Just make sure you choose high-quality, grass-fed beef (we wouldn’t sell anything … Read more

The Farm Shop or Supermarket – who is top of the crops?

We know what you’re thinking….meat from the farm shop is more expensive.  Ok, so we’re not going to start pulling the wool over your eyes and tell you that’s just a myth.  We’ve done a price comparison with Ocado, Waitrose, Sainsburys and Tesco and while we admit we are not the cheapest, our prices are … Read more

The benefits of eating local, seasonal produce

Of course we are big advocates, but this is no new fad, eating seasonally and locally is engrained in traditional cultures. Before supermarkets entered the picture with all of their convenient, processed foods, it was the only way to live. It is no coincidence that strawberries are tasteless and watery when eaten in winter, not to … Read more
