Wet nuts and raw butter, (farm shopping around Essex).

Work took me to rural Essex today, following a damp day by the roadside I decided to revisit Colletts Farm shop at Wormingford. Their milk is now available in glass which is a bonus, and their scotch eggs are rather wonderful! Looking foreward to spreading some of their raw milk farmhouse butter on some of my toasted homemade bread.

Full details of their wonderful produce can be found on Colletts Farm Kitchen website from there heading home I saw a ‘Wet Walnuts’ sign. Knowing how partial to these Mrs Livinggentler is I pulled into Lower Farm. Half a kilo of nuts from one of East Anglia’s last Walnut orchards later, and having discussed jam and chutney making, I was also the rather pleased possessor of some of their aged Ayrshire beef burgers and beef mince, oh and some home produced mango chutney!

Only being over in Nayland I can see myself becoming a regular… Lower Farm’s website can be found here it is a mine of information about traditional (now called regenerative) farming, slow food, wet walnuts, and lovely farmers…
