Happy Easter and good food from Horstead Farming Group

I hope you had a very happy Easter. It felt more like Christmas here with the snow. Been decorating today and the family sensibly left the house for a few days to avoid the dust, fumes and chaos.

I was left some lovely treats that my wife bought for me from a new farm shop that has opened at the Notcutts Garden Centre on Daniels Road in Norwich.

The farm shop is run by the Horstead Farming Group. HFG was established in 2005 and is a group of 5 family run farms based around Horstead in Norfolk working co-operatively.

If you live in Norfolk and want some lovely local traceable food, HFG have 3 farm shops at Blofield, Beeston St Andrew and Notcutts in Norwich, as well as two seasonal pick your own sites at Blofield and Sprowston.

If you do eat meat, I can certainly recommend their lamb.
Even if you don't, the veg was great and you can buy big sacks of locally produced spuds (25kg or 10kg) or onions (10kg or 5kg) and save on the shopping journeys you have to make.
Not something the supermarkets offer!
