Traditional Country Preserves

The Christmas baskets here sell fast so get in early for the best choices. We will also have bon-bons from $10 each.
Most of the traditional lines are in stock but some are getting low. Our black Doris Plum Chutney is great with your ham or poultry or over roast veg.
And we may still have some of our Spiced Apricot Sauce which also goes well with Christmas food. This is on special at $4 a bottle.

Isobel Olives

Our new healing balm is getting great reviews.

“What makes the formula of Isobel Olives healing balm so great is just how rich it is. A little goes a long way. A pea sized dab is enough to deliver a creamy hydration to your entire face or hands, or wherever you need it. It slowly melts into the skin without feeling sticky or tacky. That’s in part to the blend of Olive Oil which delivers the ingredients into your skin.”

Come and try it yourself this Sunday at the Farmers market. It’s perfect as a Christmas Gift, but I’m sure once you’ve tried it you won’t be sharing!

Chris

The Purple Patch

Celebrate with flowers this Christmas – or maybe with whitebait?

Bright sunflowers and calla lilies add a splash of colour to your Christmas table. We have just enough green and butter beans for the early shoppers. Sweet plums are ripening up too. We also have lemons and some supplies of whitebait for your festive cheer.
