As some of you know already, about our recent family holiday to the New Forest over the Easter Break…..
We met up with our good friends Ellie & Ollie at their little farm in Dorset. Some of you may recognise Ellie from exhibiting at BBC GOOD FOOD SHOW on the CONNEMARA SMOKEHOUSE stands over the years.
In recent years they have tried their hand at raring pigs along with a little bit of DIY smoking for themselves. So we went along with the kids to check out to see the first of their little piglets for 2010.
So the kids got to check out the trendy scarecrow, the chickens and collected the eggs. Fed the pigs, searched for tadpoles and checked out the fish in pond. Graham checked out Ollie’s Bee’s and DIY Smoker. After mucking around for a couple of hours, we had a bit of lunch and tried out some of Ollie’s cured pork.
Thank you Ellie & Ollie for a great day.
