The Store Is Open For The Week, Hope In An Omelette and Wild Sugar Prunes

The store has been updated and is open for this week’s orders.
I hope you all had a great week-end….its taken a long time again to open the store as there are alot of delicious changes. Summer and the rain has brought fantastic crops, most of the lists this morning had so much that was new…..I’ll keep the store open until 3pm tomorrow to make up for some of the lost ordering time.
I’ve got a lot to chatter about….I’ve done so on the blog..so click on the links to read the new articles for this week.
The one is all to do with a new farm with wild orchards that we will be getting fruit from including some delectable sugar prunes that we’ll have availalbe this week….the second article is a piece that reminds of the actual difference we make by buying organic and natural food by contrasting the difference between an omelette made with ingredients from real farms and a conventional version from factory farming…
2 Things to note before I do the list and link the articles – we will only be getting a new carcass from Kalahari Beef next week…your favourite steaks will be back up next week, there are still roasts and some stewing cuts this week. Also note a new sliced and frozen sourdough loaf that is alot more convenient to use as you can just take out slices as you need them…
Alpha Farms, Wild Orchards and Sugar Prunes…
We have these delicious fruits up this week on the store – please try them. i’ve attached a link to an article about this beautiful farm they’re coming from in Ladybrand…
They are sweeter and smaller than plums and a great lunchbox filler. We are selling them in 1kg packs, but you’ll want to buy a few of these as children especially gobble up 5-10 easily in one go so one bag probably won’t last very long! They will also give you a gorgeous organic plum/prune juice, and will comfortably last in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. These are from unspoilt wild orchards from a farm that will be supplying us with fruit…to read more about Alpha Farms, my recent visit there and why it is so special….READ MORE…
Hope Love and Humanity in an Omelette… It’s a lazy Saturday morning, one of the types that I love the best. We don’t have anywhere to rush off to, the ‘have-to-do activities on the afternoon horizon are negotiable and so everybody, with the exception of my son who had to be on the water to row at 5:30am, has space for themselves.
Blissful, unadulterated freedom to just do what matters most in the moment, which feels especially luxurious coming off the back of a week that was about getting back to school, to work, to the treadmill of our modern day lives. It’s one luxury we’re quite good at giving ourselves in this family, when there is space for mornings like this, we’ll be in our pyjamas until the last second before we need to get dressed. It’s true leisure and I’m in a great mood.READ MORE…
