November 2017 - Newsletter

Welcome to November!

What terrific weather we had in October. It was great to get outside walking and kicking a few leaves around. As the weather proved favourable we were able to plant our wheat and barley crops without too much of a to do! For bit of fun for Halloween, we ran a competition to see how creative our staff can be - here's what they came up with - see pic.

What's new!

With half term, Halloween and Bonfire Night over with, we are now turning our attentions to Christmas - eek! We've just started introducing a few tempting food and drink lines, along with some very special, affordable gifts, cards and wrapping paper - all not usually found on the high street! Our new style Christmas catalogue is now available to pick up and peruse!

Keep the home fires burning!

We're all ready for those little sharp cold snaps that seem to sneak up unannounced! So, stop by for baskets of logs, long burning Brackettes made from 100% compressed bracken, bags of kindling and great new nifty natural firelighters, made from renewable, untreated wood shavings dipped in wax. All products are suitable for wood burning stoves and open fires.

On Trend!

We've just received another delivery of some of the region's most super delicious
unpasteurised farm pressed, cider vinegar. This premium brand is produced from cider apples grown by Julian Temperley on his farm in Kingsbury Episcopi in Somerset. It is matured in oak vats to develop a full flavour.

Did you know that apple cider vinegar is widely known for its excellent culinary purposes and exceptional health properties. Often claimed to be helpful for ailments such as arthritis, rheumatism and general well being. Apparently, also good for non-health related uses such as, hair conditioning, skin and dental care.
