Enriching our Soil

Becky Willson from an organisation called Farm Carbon Cutting Toolkit came to see us yesterday. We are one of twenty farms in the country taking part in the Carbon Farming project, aimed at helping growers to build soil health by better understanding its links to soil organic matter and carbon content. Becky took the first samples to give us baseline measurements for soils we are aiming to improve on a continuous basis. For example, our new organic agroforestry orchard will benefit from innovative techniques using mulches, composts and green manures to get more organic carbon into the soil and grow even tastier produce.

Tarocco blood oranges from Italy are available this week. Try them while you can - their season is a short one. Let us know if you would like to include them in your box.

Snowed in!

We are still struggling with the snow at the moment but remain hopeful that temperatures will begin to rise early next week and that we will soon be able to resume our normal service. Please assume that we are coming as normal but we might have to think again if the snow doesn't melt quickly enough. We will keep you posted. Please let us know if you want to make any changes to your regular delivery schedule. Best wishes and stay warm!
