News from the Farm

Hello! We missed you!

We’ve returned to this rather dreary weather feeling rejuvenated from our little sunny week away. A massive thank you for your patience and understanding. A HUGE shoutout to our incredible volunteers for holding the fort while we took some time off. The farm weathered the worst of storm Ciaran and the subsequent relentless high winds. We did experience some damage to the second polytunnel, but we consider ourselves fortunate, especially in comparison to other Channel Island growers.

If you happen to pass by, you might notice that the stone wall at the far end of the site is down. Due to the weather, the wall fell in several places, prompting the decision to take the entire wall down. This ensures there’s no chance of it collapsing altogether, potentially posing a risk to unsuspecting walkers or drivers. Thanks again for your understanding and support!

Veggie of the Week

Well, herb actually! This week, we’re shining the spotlight on the fresh parsley and dill in your boxes — a welcome addition after a late boat arrival and the consequent lack of fresh produce. To keep our herbs at their freshest, we recommend storing them like fresh flowers, in a jar of water in the fridge.

In this damp and cold weather, we’ve found comfort in a soup this last week. Give this simple potato and parsley soup a go, or try out a carrot soup with dill and mustard from RIver Cottage to keep you toasty!
