Another busy week in Blundeston; a glut of beetroots from the allotment provided an opportunity for some experimental cooking…beetroot and ginger chocolate brownies received mixed reviews. Grandpa Perks loved them (but didn’t know about the beetroot.) Younger generation thought they contained blood! A new log supplier has been found so we are able to continue diversifying; offering good quality, split, hardwood logs from renewable sources for delivery. A new calf was born on Wednesday, late in the year, but always welcomed. He’ll have a couple of weeks finding his feet at home with Mum before all his aunties and cousins return home from grazing out on the marshes. We have been busy trying to secure new outlets for selling our prime beef, contacting various farmers markets etc. This would be a new way of selling for us but suspect the smell of freshly cooked beef sausage samples could be a winner. Also thinking of ways to market our beef in advance of Christmas; any suggestions of things we could include in our Christmas beef hampers would be welcomed!
