How can it be November already?

Least we forget, 

Today at 11am we will observe a two minutes silence in our three shops to remember all those who gave their lives in service to their country since 1914. If your visit our shop, please join us by remaining silent. 

November, here we go! 

It feels like we went from spring to winter in just a sneeze! Where did the summer go, and how can it possibly be November already?! Goodbye bikinis (not that we wear them a lot around the farm...) and hello wellies. 

With Christmas around the corner, we have been busy in the office updating our website to make it more festive, while running after our sheep that somehow decided to take themselves on a stroll yesterday morning! You can visit our Christmas page by clicking here.

Our three shops are busy taking pre-orders for Christmas and making hundreds of pigs in blanket ready for the Big Day. We didn't have the best of luck after reopening our East Leake shop, as our brand new fridges stopped working all the sudden; but it has now been fixed and we cannot thank you enough for your patience and continued support while we were calmly dealing with the situation. 

Our first recipe is now live,

The idea of doing a blog recipe has been floating around for a while at Elms Farm, and we are now live! Now it's only a matter to get Phil to share his secrets with us all... 

We will soon start sharing Christmas recipes, but in the meantime, have you checked our Boeuf Bourguignon a la Bordelaise recipe? If you're looking for something warm and filling, then it's definitely a winner. Serve it in a bowl and tuck yourself under a blanket while watching a movie and you have it: the perfect autumnal dish!

Amazing lamb, bacon, eggs, dairy, and more! We got free delivery during our self-isolation and Jenny and the team was so helpful! Pictured here is the beautiful lamb shanks we ordered with Elms farm’s Sweet Apple Chutney. All amazing!
