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.
The new seasons potato harvest is just about to get underway with Marfona ready first, followed in the early autumn by Picasso. The onion crop will be ready to harvest by the end of the month and then will be left to dry.
The first of our strawberries should be ready early this month and will be available to buy from the Farm Shop. Due to all the lovely sunshine in May we may be opening the Pick Your Own slightly earlier this year.
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.
