We might sound wildly optimistic but here goes anyway… BBQ season is upon us!
Well, it could be, for the brave amongst us. Or those clever enough to know that you don’t need 20° and sunshine to enjoy delicious BBQ food from the comfort of your own kitchen.
So, in the spirit of well-prepared, optimistic grilling, here’s a fantastic recipe for beer glazed short rib of beef with home-made BBQ beer sauce.Continue reading →
Easter is a time for family, sharing and enjoying good, home-cooked food. At the heart of any Sunday dinner is a great roast. And Easter is certainly no exception.
Our butchers are busy freshly preparing organic meat for a busy weekend in the shop and for home deliveries.
But perhaps not as busy as 2016 when Brett had an extra special delivery to make to the Archbishop of York for a dinner he was cooking with a very important guest…
Does life get any better than fantastic food, good company and enchanting surroundings?
The answer is no, probably not. And this premise is exactly what the team behind our latest on-site event, Fire & Dine, have tapped into.
This month saw the first magical evening take place, nestled away in the Swillington woods. Hosted by This Green Moon and The Yorkshire Gourmet, the evening was a feast for the imagination as well as the belly.
These regulations have been extended again which have forced us at Swillington to review our organic and free range poultry production.
As a Yorkshire organic farm, we’re incredibly supportive of the increased movement towards locally sourced produce. After all, organic meat and veg has been what we do for donkey’s years, so we’re chuffed that more people in the local community are getting involved.
As an organic farm, lots of planning goes into keeping all our animals outdoors for as much of the year as possible. Winter is a busy time at Swillington as we look after all the animals through the cold, wet and windy weather and prepare for the spring arrivals.
Here’s a quick look at what we’re focusing on this February…
The January cold has well and truly come back to bite us this week. So, we’re looking forward to a weekend of frosty mornings, hearty food and hibernating by the fire.
This time of year is all about staying cosy with friends and family. And whether you’re hosting a dinner party or staying at home in your pyjamas, there’s no better feeling than filling up the table with home cooked delights.
Seasonal, organic ingredients are at the heart of tasty home-cooking. So for a bit of inspiration, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite seasonal winter warmer dishes to help you get the best from your organic meat box.
With Christmas just days away, things are reaching peak levels of festivity at Swillington Farm. Our halls are decked, our meat boxes are packed and we’re down to our last two solitary Christmas trees! And that means we can now turn our attention to the most important thing of all. The food.
For us, Christmas food is about taking the best local, organic ingredients and turning them into something truly spectacular to share with family and friends.
We love seeing all the exciting different ways our meatbox customers use their deliveries, and with so many of you getting creative in the kitchen we thought we’d feature some of them on the blog.
