A very Happy New Year from us all here at Asmus Farm Cottage and all the best for 2020!
We hope you all enjoyed your Christmas hams, pigs in blankets, sausage rolls, porchettas and all the trimmings. It was lovely to think of just how many people were sitting down on Christmas Day to local, high welfare rare breed produce and we really hope it was delicious and you all had a wonderful time!
After a very busy run up to the festive season we took a few weeks break from butchering to concentrate on mending fences, building new pig arcs and general maintenance on the farm before opening the shop again at the end of the month. We also decided to extend the shop into the room next door, so we now have a great space with a bigger fridge and will be able to stock a few more products from time to time for your convenience, such as the lovely Dexter Beef some of you have already sampled and some locally reared lamb.
Introducing our new shop
The really good news is no more waiting in the cold or the rain; there is plenty of room for you now in the bigger shop!!
Shop is next open on Friday, 31st January and Saturday, 1st February 9:00 – 13:00. Why don’t you come along and see all the new space and pick up some of our new products.
What else is happening on the farm?
Back to reality on the farm, we have two sows in pig (Ethel and Rihanna) ready to give birth in the coming weeks. The hens are gradually starting to lay a few more eggs, which is fabulous news! And Martin is looking forward to the nights becoming gradually lighter as his working days are cut so short in the middle of winter. We will be rearing some meat chickens so watch this space and do get your name down if you would like one as we do a limited amount and they have proved very popular.
We’re out and about at events this month
