Strawberries, We Love You
Yes, this bit of sun is doing the trick. The Chedar strawberries are with us. Some people have some off beat ideas on how best to enjoy them. What are your alternatives to strawberries and cream?
Who are The Glastonbury Dairy?
Greens Cheese of West Pennard have ben supplying us with good cheeses for several years and Brue Valley Dairy have been our source of butter for even longer. Both farms are within 4 miles of each other and have decided to merge and call themselves The Glastonbury Dairy. So there will be some packaging changes, but everything else stays the same. The milk comes from their own cows and the people involved are as before. It should help to keep costs down and thus price rises to a minimum.
Spicy Salad Bags
We say welcome some lively spicy salad bags to mark the coming of the new season. From Simon Fox near the base of Wraxall Hill near Shepton Mallet we have a fresh salad bag containing a delicious mix of mustard greens, wild rocket and endive.They will be delivered to us in the cool early hours of Thursday morning so many of you will be eating them the day they were picked.

Asparagus and Rhubarb
Local asparagus and rhubarb enter the fray this week. Spring greens and more salad crops are all getting close to fruition. Change your eating patters to suit the season.
Buckets and Spades?
Not many fine days to entice us to the beach for an icecream cornet. But you could try the chocolate version at home. These are on a stick and will not melt as quickly as the real thing. It is pot luck as to wether you end up with a strawberry, vanilla or choco;ate fudge chip, all delicious though,
At this time of year wild garlic leaves abound and our Glastonbury gatherer, Hannah, will be foraging for them on your behalf. Wash them first and eat them in salads, soups, anywhere where a mild garlic flavour enhances the dish. Click here
For Curry Fans
And another new product, that we are including in our range, is goat meat. It is a favourite in curry making circles. Available at the moment, diced, but sausages will be added soon. Click here
Spring Water for a Spring Day
We have reduced the price on the Kingswood flavoured springwater so that you save around £2.84 when you buy 4 bottles. Click here
