Kensons Farm Organic Veg, Sutton Mandeville, Wiltshire……..

Organic and gorgeous, fresh and so full of flavour, Kensons Farm in Sutton Mandeville are a gem of a find for organic fruit and veg.  We found them some time ago at the Shaftesbury market in the town centre on Thursdays.  Kensons farm is owned and run by Liz and Hugh Collins and have been certified Organic since 2001.  The beetroot at the moment is wonderful, as is the pumpkins, runner beans, broccoli, chillies, spinach…….parsley and basil are fantastic too…..oh, and the best tasting carrots on the planet also!

We had a wonderful long walk in the Dorset air this morning and it made me feel so good, after over indulging on food we don’t usually eat….. yesterday, Christmas Day.  But it’s Boxing Day, and we are having a special meal tonight….Sparkling Rose from Australia with game pate toasts, then later on a Roast 1/2  Leg of Lamb, marinated in garlic and rosemary, served with roast root vegetables and of course the good old Brussel Sprouts.  Our Brussels are from the organic veg market stall in Shaftesbury, Kensons Farm, Sutton Manderville….they are the best tasting Brussel sprouts I have ever had!!!  Their organic vegetables are wonderful.
