Other snippets of news are:

  1. Look out for our own branded tea, which has just been re-packaged in bags & with labels to match our branded coffee.
  2. Martin Moyden’s Apley cheese won bronze award in the Artisan cheese awards Melton Mowbray – more on that to follow.
  3. Last week, Tina sent me these lovely photos of the Apley Plant Centre hedging, which creates a prettier & more enclosed area for our Creamery Cafe customers.
  4. There’s still some wild garlic in the woods – it’s been very early this year. It wilts very fast, so just ask shop staff if you’d like some picked especially for you & set a collection time. Chef uses it for quiches, pesto, soups & salads.
