Second only to my passion for furniture is my passion for good food! Gaz and I try to buy local, fresh produce where possible. On the weekends we head out to buy chicken and duck eggs from a lady in South Bristol, and fresh bread from the local bakery. This weekend we went to Farrington’s Farm Shop in Farrington Gurney to buy fruit and vegetables. As you can see, we got quite a haul!!
We picked up this squash which is a light blue colour! I’ve never seen a blue squash before but I can’t wait to try it!
We also picked up lots of plums and pears which we’re going to use to make flavoured vodka. We usually make sloe gin but the sloe harvest has been particularly poor this year. I’m therefore looking forward to trying out some fruity alternatives.
The farm shop is like an Aladdin’s cave of amazing food which is either produced on site or sourced locally. As you can see, Gaz and I spent a lot of time at the cheese counter and walked away with a rather healthy cheeseboard!
Perfect for afternoon snacking!
We had a fab time at Farrington’s – food plus farm animals makes for a great morning!
