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.
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.
Our Pumpkins are growing nicely and ripening well, but almost too well so they may be available in the Farm Shop a little earlier this year.
Our maize maze is open now and we hope it will be lots of fun for our younger customers during the remainder of the school holidays.
Due to the warm weather last month we had a much earlier start to our PYO season. We still have plenty of fruit available. Late varieties of strawberries including Symphony and Malwina have been planted so we hope to still be picking strawberries until early August this year (fingers crossed).
