Langley Chase Goes to the Big Food Fair!

The Bristol Organic Food Fair at the beginning of the month was well attended and great fun catching up with customers and old friends as well as meeting new customers. Our new smoked lamb went well and had a lot of attention and interest.

It is not easy producing a registered organic product so it has been great to have it well received.

I have been back to Berry Bros and Rudd in St. James’s for another evening giving a talk and our Manx Loaghtan lamb was splendidly showcased with amazingly delicious courses produced by their chef, Stuart. Our lamb was paired this time with wonderful fine Riojas .Canap├ęs of smoked lamb with beetroot, mini mutton and mint burgers and mini apple parsley sage and thyme sausages were followed by courses of Navarin of mutton, Liver and bacon, roasted leg and roasted shoulder, roasted rack and then sweetbread cannelloni! How about that!!

After all the wet weather it has been very helpful to have some days now of sunshine which enables us to get on the fields and move sheep and hurdles about without cutting up the ground and to catch up with jobs.

It is now the time for marketing the lambs which have done so well on all the grass which has been growing and growing. The mutton is also looking very good and has finished well on all the grass. I hope that this dry spell continues so that we can get to the fields easily with the trailer.
