LATEST UPDATE (20 February 2019, about upcoming Village Greens, Friday 22 February)
Any leftover soup from the cafe is brought back to the farm, labelled and frozen. Last week’s “Cheesy Cauliflower” was no different. Except the poor hand writing meant that we were to be found eating “Cheery Cauliflower” a few days later. This made us consider the emotions of various foodstuffs (Disruptive Lentils, Contented Potatoes, Joyful Broccoli and so on) It also reminded us that we were once asked if McDonalds serve “Sad Meals,” to make a balanced menu with “Happy Meals.” It’s our opinion that all food, cooking and eating experiences should be a positive and uplifting part of the day. Making the time to grow, harvest and share food is an essential component of every farming life, and supporting small producers gives customers a connection with that process.
Come along to Village Greens and play your part in our very own Local Food Story, make it a Happy Ending! We’ve got lots to offer, good wholesome food, companionship, support for neighbours, all stemming from locally produced food. This week’s soup will be Carefree Winter Vegetable Broth, there will be Elated Baking, and Serene Vegetables, including beetroot, cabbage, calabrese, cauliflower, celeriac and lots more.
