With less than two months until the big day, we’re allowed to start getting excited for Christmas, aren’t we?

Swillington’s organic fruit and veg has been shortlisted for a Taste Award!
This year our organic produce has been shortlisted again at the Taste Awards, hosted by Deliciouslyorkshire and the Yorkshire Post.
The Taste Awards are an annual celebration of local Yorkshire produce, with 22 different award categories recognising the very best food and drink from across the county.
It’s Organic September, our favourite month of the year. It’s the month in which we celebrate all that is organic and for us that means pretty much everything!
Even the produce we source from our suppliers is organic wherever possible and so we thought we would tell you about one of them.
With milk suppliers in the news at the moment we thought we’d introduce to you, Acorn Dairy.
Buying from a local dairy means the producer gets a fair price and as it’s organic you’re guaranteed that the cows are kept to high standards of animal welfare and are grass fed without any routine use of antibiotics which is better for you too. So everyone wins!
As no artificial, chemical fertilisers or herbicides are used on their pastures it’s also better for the environment and wildlife so what’s not to love?
Check out their website for more information on their evening walks and pop down and meet the herd.
