Tomato & Peach Panzanella

This salad has been going down a storm in our pop-up coffee cabin this summer. It's a classic salad, born within Italian households of old as a way to use up stale bread. It's best when tomatoes are in season as they really are the stars of the show. We've had some...

Foraged Elderflower Cordial

Sunny days are for foraging and right now is all about those fragrant elderflowers that you'll see blooming right now. The large white flat-topped clusters of beauty can be found in most hedgerows and gardens around Wiltshire usually around mid-May to June....

If you’ve been up to the farm shop over the last few weeks, you’ll see the calves at Hartley Farm have been the main focus of attention for us on the farm. Our calving season has now finished on the farm and the next big job is silage making. We’ve had near-perfect...

The New Normal

We’re almost at the stage where we’ve begun to find some rhythm and dare I say it, routine in our day’s work. Which in recent times, means it is time for another government announcement to shake it all up again. It’s hard work planning a business at the moment. On the...

Cobb Salad

Cobb Salad

This is a bit of an American classic and we thought it would be a great dish to kick off the spring with, all the health benefits of fresh salads and vegetables with a comfortingly rich homemade dress...

March

March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb as they say. I can’t help thinking about this as I write this month’s blog just off the back of two bracing storms in Ciara and Dennis. The latter pa...
Cock-a-Leekie Pie

Cock-a-Leekie Pie

This recipe is a bit of a play on the traditional Scottish Cock-a-leekie soup. Leeks are right in season in February and this recipe matches them beautifully with the smoked bacon and prunes. If you h...
