Keeping healthy and energy levels up on busy days…

March has rushed by here on the farm. Lambing, calving, hedge planting, a bit of construction to repair storm damage and the long awaited new access road is underway.

Spring is a busy time for many with the clock change and longer day length energy levels can a little depleted. I know I need to rev myself up at this time of year.

We have been advertising for a new staff member to help with deliveries, in the farm shop and a bit of baking if possible. It’s a part time position which includes 1 weekend a month. If you think you’ve got what it takes to join our busy team, please do get in touch.

It looks very much like a March, came in like a lamb, and is going out like a lion. We’ve had 4 seasons of weather today, sleet and snow, sun and cold wind.

My fingers are crossed for the weather to pick up again and April to be warm and bright. We’re still planting potatoes and succession sowing seeds so the potting shed is filling up and we’re all getting excited about new shoots.

Greens and salads are growing well so they are back on the extras list.

Menu ideas for this week

We’ve kept it simple for the meat bags this week and we hope this buys you a bit of time back
We’ve given you meatballs, minute steaks and burgers which always go down very well.

Now I’m doing the meatballs with gravy and wedges with greens but they would be just as fabulous in an italian tomato sauce and pasta

The minute steaks take me back to my youth. Steak sandwiches in my local pub after a days lambing or just a Friday treat. So it’s steak sandwiches for us on Saturday with a movie, if we finish work in good time.

Burgers are for a mid week meal when we get in late because they are so quick and easy.

I’ll still make a soup because it’s so handy for lunches during the week with leftovers.

And this weeks cake will probably be a carrot cake. I had a little bit of beetroot lurking in the fridge last week and made chocolate beetroot muffins which didn’t last long.

Please let us know what you make with your box deliveries this week.

Take care, Beth
