Manor Farm shop open this weekend June 3 from 10am - midday

Manor Farm shop open this weekend June 3 from 10am - midday at Manor Farm, Chearsley. 

Dear all,

This year's lambs are growing well and remarkably fast. We’ve just had another calf to a first time mum, the little white heifer with no horns and black ears. He was a big boy so it was a job getting him out but he arrived safely, well done to Andrew. The cowslips are over and have been replaced by a sea of yellow buttercups. I love the way the meadows change over the season. 

I have a fresh delivery of lamb coming, almost the last of last years. 

Later in June, I will have more beef and only have a very small amount left now. Please come to the farm shop, I am opening this Saturday 3 June 10am until midday. Feel free to walk down the drive or up the track. Miranda will bring some of her flowers and I have apple juice too and Alla will make some fresh mayonnaise using 100% olive oil, it’s delicious. 

 All the best Rose

Saturday 22 April - Pop up Manor Farm shop with Chearsley farm produce !

Hello everyone,

We have had a very busy time with lambing and now have just 4 sheep left to lamb! I expect many of you have seen them out in the fields - with the occasional escape artist on the footpath!

Spring is here, with bursting buds, blossom and birdsong. We have some delicious meat which will be available to buy at the farm in my ‘pop up shop’ on Saturday 22nd morning from 10-12am - I have beef and lamb and apple juice. If you’d like to order in advance, just drop me a line.

I hope to see some familiar faces and some new ones. I am thinking of making this a regular event so please spread the word (feel free to forward this email) and soon my new website will be up ( with information about produce, farm walks and shop times if you sign up to the newsletter.

All information about produce is below - I can deliver locally if you would prefer.
If anyone else would like to bring produce to sell, they are welcome. Also a local friend who grows sustainable flowers plans to be there with her beautiful blooms. Please come along! 
All the best
