2016 presented a lot of new avenues that I really wanted to follow, but I simply didn’t have enough hours in the day to do it all on my own. I am now joined by Ellen who has quickly become my right hand ‘man’ (so to speak!).
Last year also saw the start of The Farmhouse Kitchen and the Pie Nights, which I’m delighted to say were an immediate success – our steak pies have gone down a treat! In addition to the pies, we also take Sausages and Bacon to buy on the night and any pre-ordered meat for collection on the same evening. These new Pop-Up shops are working really well – you’ll find details of the next events on our Facebook page, but usually Le Champsac on the 3rd Saturday of the month, and in Saint-Léger-Magnazeix on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.
From March, we’ll also be offering lunches at the farm and private dining for up to 30 people.
Very important to me has always been the outside catering that we can offer, and last year we did our first few weddings!! It was a little daunting at the start but we love doing them and the atmosphere is fabulous. We’ve had such lovely reviews too, it’s given us a real buzz to know how much people have really enjoyed the food.
After doing a very small amount of advertising, we have now booked a number of catering events for 2017 and some for 2018, so if you would be interested in us catering your event then getting in touch sooner rather than later would be advised.
One final thing we really wanted to do for 2017 was get our website up to date and finally here it is! You can now pre-order directly online using the Order Form, and also find out more about our sample menus for catering and the special occasion cakes I make to order.
