Busy times at Walsingham Farms Shop at Walsingham…
In the first week of half term, visitors were beginning to stock up with Norfolk provenance provisions and Christmas stocking fillers.
Selling really well is this delicious Black Shuck sloe gin (the company also produce rich sloe gin truffles), just launched this October from the Norfolk Sloe company, and made in Fakenham.
On Thursday 25th October we held a very successful tutored wine tasting evening with Mike Bancroft of Bancroft Wines. It was great to welcome people to the shop in the evening, for some fairly serious tasting accompanied by delicious things to eat from the kitchen. The new Malbec in particular seemed to go down very well. We are already looking forward to organising another tasting evening, to be held in December, look out for the next date.
Chef Chris Woodget is now in the kitchen at the Walsingham shop (he was previously at our restaurant at Norfolk Lavender, The Lavender Kitchen, and also helped out in the farm shop kitchen). He has been busy making delicious ready meals, side dishes, desserts and lots of seasonal fresh soups.
Eve and Chloe have also joined the Walsingham team, to help out in the deli and on the shop floor.
If you missed our wine evening, come in soon to inspect our refreshed range of wines, among which we’ve also introduced two reds and two whites from a relatively new Norfolk vineyard, Winbirri Vineyard near Norwich.
We can also source and take special orders for wines on request, please just ask.
Also new this year for Christmas hampers and gifts, we have a selection of natural wicker baskets, such as this one for four bottles, as well as hampers and trugs, to fill with your choice of our great Norfolk produce.
