I was visiting Barrie’s Asparagus Farm's Facebook page and found this charming sketch done by one of their customers.
This was done by Betsy Ackford who is a member of a local group who sketch urban scenes. The following picture is a great one of the "modern farmer", Tim Barrie receiving orders on his phone.
How things have changed. The Facebook site also has pictures of the 17 (I think) piglets which they are raising this summer. I’ve never tried their pork. Although they haven’t announced the date yet, the asparagus won’t be for sale much longer sadly.
I have posted this recipe before, but as this is what we are having for supper tonight, I thought I would share it again.
