Brown Bag Crisps: essential crunching

Our newest crunchy addition: Brown Bag Crisps, cooked in olive oil

Our newest crunchy addition: Brown Bag Crisps, the first in Britain to be cooked in olive oil

We are very pleased to add Brown Bag Crisps to our range of snacks. It was the truly distinctive packaging that caught our eye first of all, but the taste-test confirmed for us that these crisps are ideal for our farm shop.

Brown Bag Crisps are gently hand-cooked in 100% olive oil before being seasoned with carefully-selected ingredients. Like us, the company is a small family-run business, and these crisps are already proving very popular with our customers.

We currently stock three flavours: Lightly Salted, Oak Smoked Chilli, and Mature Cheddar, Manchego & Onion, with more to come soon. These crisps have won Great Taste Gold, and there is also a great write-up on the Crisp Nation website (yes, it’s a site all about crispshere.

Tuesday means fresh fish!

If you visit our farm shop on any Tuesdaybetween 10am and 2pm, you will find a huge selection of fresh fish and shellfish available to buy from Johnson’s Enterprises, who have a large display on show in our car park each week.

All the fish are caught by registered UK fishermen from sustainable UK stocks. The company has a wealth of experience behind them, having provided superb quality seafood since 1975. Please do come and have a look next time you passing on a Tuesday morning, as we believe we now offer one of the best selections of fresh fish in the area.

Pelagonia meze range

Extremely edible produce from Macedonia!

Extremely edible produce from Macedonia!

300 days of sunshine a year can work wonders for growing fresh produce, as proved with the fantastic Pelagonia Range, whose products are grown and harvested in the Pelagonia valley, in south-west Macedonia.

This delicious roasted red pepper meze range is now available in our farm shop. The Aivar meze is made from sweet roasted red peppers and is delicious with flatbreads, in sandwiches, or served with salty cheese. The Malidzano meze has a rich smoky aubergine and pepper taste and is delicious as a dip or stirred into mashed potato. For a rich, spicy meze with a pleasant kick, Luteniza is a perfect accompaniment to BBQ meat.

We also have whole roasted red peppers with a naturally sweet taste; ideal for antipasti or salads. Each product is presented in a striking glass jar (pictured above), and would make an excellent gift.
