The Many Shades of Autumn

We hope you’re enjoying the colors of autumn as much as we are.

We’re also pretty excited about the amazing colors of veges you can buy in the shop this time of year.

We just love the three special beets which have graced our shelves recently – Choggia, Golden Globe and Cylindra – which just seem destined to make our usual beets and organic beets look rather plain (we’d hate to think how the neeps are feeling…!). Try slow baking them with a drizzle of oil as seen below with our exciting black british heritage potatoes which are actually a brilliant purple (and some sweet potatoes which we know are not local autumnal). Or try baking them in wedges in baking paper for sweet and colorful additions to a salad.

And don’t get us started on squashes… but do come say hello to our Organic Blue Ballet, Celebration, Crook Neck, Delicata, Green Acorn, Harlequin, Hokkaido, Rolet, and Spaghetti Squash friends.

Check out Facebook page for some spooky Halloween entrants in our pumpkin carving competition – thanks to all the entrants and posts. We do love nothing more than being tagged, shared and liked. So whether you’re a facebooker, tweeter or instagramer, please think about supporting us in this way.

Have a lovely foggy week! Stay posted for some upcoming festive events and some more info on how you can volunteer with us in wonderful interesting ways.
