News From The Farm
The Bellis Family have farmed land in Holt since the 1860s. Today we have a Market Gardening Farm growing a wide selection of fruit and vegetables for you to buy in the Farm Shop. This fresh produce is wonderful as it can go from field to shop in a matter of minutes and with zero food miles.
In the summer months we open some of the fields for Pick Your Own. Robert Sturrock our Farm Manager works hard through out the year to provide our customers with quality produce.
Most of December is devoted to getting the extra stock sorted for the Christmas demand. We have plenty of our homegrown cabbages at the moment but this will change as soon as we have any significant frosts. We continue to grade more potatoes and onions and have plenty in storage to last the winter.
The autumn harvesting is nearly all completed, so we are settling into the winter routine of grading potatoes and onions out of the store to ensure a good supply for the Farm Shop over the winter months.
Our potatoes and onions are a little slow to come through due to the recent wet weather. Once they are dried and safely in store they will hopefully keep us going through the Winter.
