Golden Autumn

This time of year is pretty lovely isn’t it? It’s mellow and golden, less of a technicolour assault on the senses than high summer. The food follows suit, with warm pots of slow cooked things, roasted vegetables and perhaps some fruity things thrown in for good measure, apples and plums are still very much around. The nights are closing in and with a little bit more of a chill in the air, these warming flavours are welcome. It is also of course the season for game, we sell pheasants from our local Heligan shoot on our shop website, available for delivery across the UK. A slow roasted joint of Belly Pork with baked English apples and juniper berries is perfect for a cosy night in. Of course there are pumpkins and squash to consider, soup? pie? roasted? Whatever you choose, make sure its lovely and any great ideas you’d like to to share with us post them along to lobbsfarmshop@btconnect.com

It’s also a great time of year to take a hike around this beautiful corner of Cornwall. If you haven’t explored the path across Lobb’s farm and into tranquil woodland, autumn is a fabulous time to do so, the rich earthy smells of the woodland are intoxicating. There’s always a chance of spotting some wildlife too along the way. Just remember your wellies, it does get rather muddy! You can find more information on our ‘Permissive Path’ page on this blog.So get on out there this Autumn, take a long muddy walk before heading home and cooking up something rich and warming for the dark evening. It’s an awesome time of year!
