Our Country Living Award

Here's the proof! We had such a good time at the show - all of the people from the event organisers and from Country Living Magazine made it as good as it can be. It's always hard work, you always end up exhausted but if the hassle is minimised it makes all the difference. Things like being able to have a freshly cooked breakfast with wholesome ingredients before you start really made a difference. Hats off to all of the cheerful staff at The Good Eating Company in the venue. Even the taxi drivers were cheerful!

We are so pleased to have won this award on our first visit and it really gives our staff a boost who worked especially hard to keep everything going back at base while some of us were away. We've shared the champagne with them this morning so if something is missing from your order today you'll know why.

It was lovely to meet lots of our customers face to face and we have plenty of feedback for next year, and for the things you are looking for, so we'll get to work on that.

We have a couple of great schemes coming up which we'll do separate entries on once we've caught up with the post and the messages.

Guess what I saw today?

We've been to some meetings today (groan) but on the way back stopped at a farm shop we know of (hurrah) and they had some very young, very pale pink rhubarb - the first I've seen so
far. It will start to come in now more and more and I'm hoping to be able to use some for a new Jam Jar Shop video epic - making Rhubarb and Ginger Chutney. Hopefully May and I will be able to take the photos this week and I can get it onto YouTube so you can make some too. It's really exciting because it is the first home-grown crop of the year - next will be gooseberries married with the fantastic hedgerow Elderflowers and then, well it will all kick off early Summer.

Here we go!
