Apache potatoes sold out in Apley Farm Shop

Apache potatoes

Tina emailed me earlier to say “I have personally scraped in the kitchen sink some Apley Walled Garden Apache potatoes (the purple ones with white spots), cooked them & seved with sea salt, chives & drizzled butter. “ She then stood & talked pretty much all day to our customers about them as they taste fantastic (Gavin adores potatoes, so is Apley’s Chef Tasting Officer !).

The result was that she had sold out by 4 o’clock. Customers had been saying they were unsure about the appearance of these potatoes (how could they not see how pretty they are !?). Before they’d chatted with Tina, they may not have bought any, but after tasting them, they were snapped up straight away ! The same applies to artichokes. It seems many don’t know how to store, cook or even eat them ! 

Thank goodness it poured with rain all day as the grass on parks & playing fields is already looking very yellow.  Friday was beautiful for Venetia’s Sports Day when she put on a Zola Budd style amazing finish (thankfully no-one fell over).  But today made our riding event sooo soggy. At least there was no thunder & lightning, so it didn’t diminish the fun the girls had.

    Hello Lady Hamilton

    I’m not sure if you remember me; I was one of the women that you filmed riding along the railway line last week.

    Emma (who was with me) and I are founder members of a new local triathlon club (BASCTRI – Bridgnorth and Severn Centre Triathlon Club) and we were having a bit of an easy ride for a change as we were going open water swimming that afternoon.

    To go open water swimming we have to travel to lakes in Whitchurch, Worcester or Droitwich which takes about an hour each way.

    We are always on the look out for somewhere local that members of our club can go for open water swimming but have not had any luck.

    We were wondering if there are any lakes on Apley Estate that would be suitable for us to swim in and that you would be happy for us to use?

    This is just a tentative initial query; we would of course meet with you to discuss it in more detail if there is anywhere we could use.

    I look forward to hearing from you

    Kind regards
