The Farm Shop is full to the brim with tasty Norfolk grown fruit and vegetables at the moment – at this time of year, there is simply so much to choose from that we thought we would highlight some of our favourites.
Current crowning glory is our Norfolk Super-Sweet Sweetcorn. At only 55p per cob (or £1.00 for two) we think they are fantastic value for money and absolutely delicious. Perfect as an accompaniment to a main meal or as a starter, they are so easy to prepare and loved by children and adults alike.
We love this time of year, the sheer variety and selection of fruit available is tremendous. On a hot day, there is nothing as refreshing as a peach or nectarine packed full of sweet, delicious juice. Our favourite are the doughnut varieties, but maybe that’s just because of the mention of doughnuts! Alongside those, we are selling Norfolk raspberries & strawberries from Tunstead and blueberries direct from the farm in Norfolk. The English plum season is getting underway and we currently have Opal, Swan and Jubileum varieties. We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Victoria Plums, among others, within the next 1-2 weeks. On top of that, the apple season is just beginning and we have Discovery Apples fresh in the shop from the Bergh Apton orchard.
We don’t just sell fruit and vegetables in the Farm Shop, we also stock a good variety of store cupboard essentials and some delicious treats! A perennial favourite with our customers are our packs of Border Biscuits in a range of delicious including Milk Chocolate Hazelnut Case, Chocolate Gingers and Chocolate Flips, priced at £1.50 per pack. And if you prefer a savoury snack, our Farmhouse Biscuits are delicious – flavours include Black Pepper & Sea Salt, Mustard & Onion and Stilton Cheese and packs are £1.65 each.
