So, who watches Don’t Tell the Bride on BBC 3? Come on, own up! There was an episode being filmed in and around Mevagissey on July 5th and Lobbs Farm Shop were asked to provide a stand with roasted joints of pork and beef carved up & served in lovely fresh rolls. It was butcher Phil’s turn to be on camera as he was in charge of the stand in the gardens of Silvanus, a large property overlooking Mevagissey village and harbour. The weather stayed dry and the guests were able to mingle out in the gardens. The film crew were buzzing around following the bride’s every move and reaction. Phil did a sterling job making sure everyone was catered for, the food went down very well indeed. Having a roast like this is a nice option and allows you to have a mixture of roasted meats instead of just a whole pig or lamb as a hog roast. If you’re interested, enquire at the butchery counter in Lobbs Farm Shop or give us a ring on 01726 844411. We can also provide freshly made coleslaw, waldorf, potato and cous cous salads amongst others if that took your fancy. It’s great for parties and takes the worry of catering out of your hands!

There seems to be a day or week for just about everything doesn’t there! But who can resist National BBQ Week? A chance to bask in the beautiful English sunshine…. *ahem* and a very good chance to make the most of some local produce on your grill. If you choose to stick with the trusty sausage and burger combo, make sure they’re good ones, perhaps even make your own burgers? Or maybe be a little more adventurous and get chopping with some garden herbs for a tasty marinade such as this one from Angela Hartnett? Whatever you end up cooking, enjoy!
You can buy a delicious range of home reared meats from our farm here in South Cornwall on our website, all available for UK wide delivery.

There’s been some fairly hefty showers around, laden with raindrops and hail stones. It made for some atmospheric shots one evening last week at Kestle farm. The logo tree field is currently planted with potatoes under those huge furrows. The clear north westerly air provided lovely views north to the clay district, otherwise known as the Cornish Alps! And yes, I did get splattered with chilly rain whilst out in the field…
