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.
After a much later start than normal our homegrown delicious asparagus is ready and available in the Farm Shop. We also have rhubarb, purple sprouting broccoli and cauliflower.
Spring is supposed to be here now! We still appear to be in the middle of Winter. The Lapwings have only just appeared over at Esp Hill Farm, they too are late for the time of year. Plant growth is very behind due to the recent cold and extremely wet weather we have been having.
The onions from last year are now finished and we have a few pallets of potatoes left in the store. We still have plenty of January King, Savoy, Red and Tundra cabbages, but the White cabbage are starting to deplete now. They will finish some time this month.
