From garden to cafe kitchen & farm shop – here’s the latest Apley Walled Garden produce. Phil’s not very happy with the cold wet weather this week, but has still managed to get this produce to grow ! And it’s fab to see this original drawing of the Robin Hood boiler – one of the 2 installed soon after 1867 in Apley Walled Garden was a Robin Hood.

New pesto in Apley Farm Shop

Caroline’s Pesto is new in Apley Farm Shop. If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. It doesn’t last long in our fridge ! I try to profile all our new producers, so customers have a background on them before they try & buy. Knowing the provenance makes food taste better !

Here’s what Caroline sent me: “It is fresh, authentic & delicious. Made only with the highest quality ingredients, it is home-made in small batches to ensure the most mouth-watering results. It will become a staple in your fridge for adding to pasta, fish, stews, soups, to balsamic to make a dressing, to cream cheese to make dips….”

I love her label motto strap line – from my kitchen to yours.
