We love food and are happy to share the experience with you during your visit. Let us know in advance what would make your stay really special and we will endeavour to make it possible.
We grow heaps of salad leaves, vegetables and herbs. Using only natural fertiliser from nettle or comfrey tea. We like to experiment with perennial vegetables and companion planting wherever we can.
We make sourdough bread and pancakes. Sourdough is more digestible than standard loaves and more nutritious too. Lactic acids make the vitamins and minerals in the flour more available to the body. The acids slow down the rate at which glucose is released into the blood-stream and lower the bread's glycaemic index (GI). They also render the gluten in flour more digestible and less likely to cause food intolerance.
Our established fruit trees and bushes give us ample fruit to make jams, chutneys, cakes and to freeze. Our new orchard will give us a crop to sell in a few years time.
Kombucha is a fermented drink made from sweetened tea and a specific culture known as a scoby.
Kefir grains make great smoothies and soft cheeses. Regular intake is good for blood pressure, cholesterol balance and blood sugar management. Kefir grains may contain 30 or more strains of beneficial bacteria and yeasts which support healthy gut flora.
Our moist climate is wonderful for funghis. The nearby forests are full of chanterelles from August onwards. A fun activity for young and old.
