LATEST UPDATE – 22 January 2020, about upcoming Village Greens, Friday 24 January
From one weather extreme to another, I found myself driving in very icy conditions on Sunday morning with a heavily laden trailer of pigs. It got me wondering what happens if I have a breakdown while transporting animals. Does my roadside recovery service stretch to getting myself and my companions to our destination, even if my companions are not human? Or would I have to build a little roadside refuge for the pigs? A “pigloo” given the sub-zero temperatures. Happily, we made it without mishap, albeit rather slowly.
We’ve been a bit under the weather, literally, as always, and figuratively too. The long winter has perhaps caught up with us, the start of the week was wiped out by feeling quite ill. Happily improved now, but it means a scaled back version of Village Greens is on offer this week. There will be a lighter menu in the cafe, including toast, eggs and pancakes, and a big pan of soup for lunch. We apologise for any inconvenience, and expect to be back up to full strength by next week. There’s lots of other goodies on offer though, including new stilton and goats cheese, a hint of summer to come in the form of elderflower cordial, and some new flapjacks and muesli among other things. As always, a good selection of fruit and veg, including cabbages, calabrese, sweet potatoes, fruit and seville oranges.
