Spring on the farm!
Despite the wind and rain spring is arriving at the farm! We have welcomed our first lambs at our sister farm near Buxton and are also hoping that Frankie, our guinea pig, will soon be giving birth – keep an eye on our Facebook page for baby updates!
We are also excited to announce that we have some new arrivals in the farm shop! Our first new supplier is Clive’s Wines. These wines are locally made in Staffordshire and are purely fruit based. We have a range of flavours available including Elderflower, Cherry, Damson and Rhubarb – they really do taste of the fruits and make great gifts! Pop along to the shop, we might even give you a free tasting!
Did you know that you can now recycle at Betty’s? Bring along your used stamps, crisp packets, baby food pouches, plastic bottle tops/lids and batteries and we will send these off to be reprocessed in new products. This not only helps the environment but also benefits several national and local charities – the stamps are sent to the RNIB, the crisp packets are recycled by Tetracycle who donate to the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance and the baby food pouches benefit local charity Me&Dee. Thank you for all the items already received, and don’t forget we also have a donation bin for the British Heart Foundation.
Mother’s Day is on 31st March and we are have a range of foody gift ideas to make Mum, Granny, Step-mum, Mother-in-law or Aunty feel extra special this Mothering Sunday. How about a Cottage Delight gift set, Belgian chocolate prosecco bottle or speciality gin? We can also help out with breakfast in bed – pick up a jar of luxury jam, artisan bread, home reared native breed bacon and, of course, Betty’s free range eggs!
We hope to see you soon at Betty’s Farm!
