Apley Walled Garden Pear & beetroot salad

2014-10-09, Apley pear & beetroot salad recipeJust fresh in today are these lovely recipe cards created by Rebecca in Apley Farm Shop for Apley Walled Gardens fruit & veg, produced by Phil Allen & his team of volunteers.

Our fridge has pears & beetroot right now, so I’ll try this one tomorrow !

I’ve also just had this feedback from the private Walled Garden tour which Phil led on Tuesday:

This morning’s visit to The Walled Garden was so uplifting. You are very knowledgeable and we were greatly impressed. We learned a great deal and found the visit fascinating. Thank you so much for giving up your valuable time. Michael, my husband, wants to volunteer next spring, so he’ll be in touch I’m sure. Good luck with your future renovations. We’ll be visiting again !”

This weekend at Apley Farm Shop, the CPRE are holding their Big Draw in Pigg’s Playbarn 10-4pm Sat, then on Sunday 12 Oct, Hope House Hospice are holding their zip wire event, also 10-4pm, which should be thrilling to watch !

We’re closing the 3 Apley Holiday Cottages, so I’ll be busy there packing up this weekend. If you are interested in buying any of the contents, do contact the Estate Office 01746 762 110 or Farm Shop office 01952 730 345. I’ll make the catalogue available soon.

It’s been rather wet in Shropshire this week, so the Apley farming team have been doing fencing, maintenance & preparing the livestock buildings for when the cattle come in for the winter by the end of October. 200 cows are hopefully now in calf, due in Feb 2015.
