First Harvest

Posted on: Friday 19th August 2011

The first produce has just been harvested from Cwm Harry’s back field (today, August 19th) and will be included in this week’s delivery of vegetable bags.  The harvest is of fat, red radishes, French beans, spinach, rocket and mizuna leaves for the salad bags – so fresh the raindrops are still on them.  Also in the veggie bags this week are courgettes, onions, garlic, runner beans, rainbow chard, and potatoes from Erw’s Acre in Llanmerewig.

The Oriel Gallery Cafe in Newtown, with a reputation for delicious and nutritious meals, has signed up as Cwm Harry’s first commercial customer for our  local produce.  The cafe has a policy of buying local food when it is possible to do so.  Why not go along and try their fare?
