A complete mixture of weather this week, the log burner was lit at the beginning of the week in our indoor seating area, by Thursday the doors were fully open once again and it was pleasantly warm to sit outside - Saturday felt like a complete return to Summer.
There is something very cosy and atmospheric about an open fire, so it is not all doom and gloom as move into the cooler months.
I am surprised by how many Christmas orders we have taken this week! Our order form is now available on our website.
We do have records of previous customer, Christmas orders, so if you would like to repeat an order, or enquire as to what you have had in the past please just drop me a line, or give the shop a call (01386) 870296 and we will find your previous orders. Orders taken in 2020 are in files behind the shop till, but we have records on our data base going back at least 5 years - it makes life very easy if you would like to order the same again.
We can also email you an order form, or they are available to pick up / fill in, in the shop. We are more than happy to talk you through your order.
Pigs in Blankets
These are now available on the shelf, and are suitable for home freezing, if you would like to be super organised.
Thank you to Nigel we are well stocked with our local pumpkins grown in Harvington.
It is that time of year when our flavoured gins become a firm favourite; great as Christmas or birthday presents. Foxdenton supply us with a variety of fruity flavours, we all liked the sound of "Hedgerow" for something different ! Our shelves are brimming with lots flavours and sizes.
It is worth remembering we are able to provide a personal gift hamper service. Frequently we are asked to make up gift hampers, customers tell us how much they would like to spend and we do the rest.
If this is something that might interest you I would advise ringing on a Monday or a Wednesday and asking to speak to Bev - it is definitely her forte!
In true Harvest festival style, Toby has been "ploughing the fields and scattering the good seed on the land" I am sure I am not the only one to remember that hymn from school assembly days!
I have been reliably informed the "planting of crops" is going quite well, and they are nearly finished, but I am sure there will be something else to worry about when this task is complete!
After an incredibly busy Saturday, (thank you for everyone's custom, and apologies to those that had to wait in the queue!) I managed to sneak out and watch the last 10 minutes of Toby's debut for Evesham 1st XV Men's team. Proud doesn't come anywhere close to how I felt watching him - but it is a brutal game at this level!
Emily and Sonny completed Weston Park Horse Trials today. This time it was the turn of her father to take her. David doesn't get to watch Emily very often in the summer months, so it was a good opportunity for him to see how well she has done producing an ex racehorse to this level.
Some beautiful autumnal mornings to wake up to recently, definitely creating a feeling of get up and go.
