Do you have them round where you live?
There is a plethora of Farm Shops around here and they all have their ways of attracting you in. One has a large play park for children and a lot of unusual animals, another has KuneKune pigs and rare breed hens. But once inside the shop one is very like another.
Our most popular one, which I intend to visit once the weather here is less than abominable, has a super cafe and a super range of home baking which can be bought.
Today I went with my daughter in law to one which is much nearer. It is fairly new on the Farm Shop circuit and has won a lot of awards this year. Certainly the cafe is lovely, the quality of the coffee is excellent and the scones are light and tasty (we ignored the rest of what looked like a scrumptious lot of home-baked cakes). There was a butchery selling local high quality meat and a whole range of speciality olive oils, chutneys etc. It was nice for a little trip out on a miserable afternoon, but that is as far as it goes. I shall report on the other one when I eventually get there. I have heard excellent reports.
I have to report that my friend who lost her husband yesterday is much better today. Yesterday was an awful day of shock but today she sounded much more like her old self when I spoke to her this morning. The difference? She has her family round her. There is nothing like family to give one a sense of strength and love is there?
