Christmas Poultry 2015

November 24th, 2015

2015 Prices Christmas Poultry Prices

Whether you’re looking for a traditional turkey, cockerel, goose, duck, or a three bird roast this year, Smiths Farm Shop have got the best quality poultry to make this Christmas extra special!

Our turkeys come from a family run farm in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside where a mixture of white turkeys and the more traditional bronze birds are reared. They are fed on home grown grain, rich in wheat and oats giving them their unique flavour that customers love. All birds are plucked by hand, these days most turkeys are wet plucked by a machine, which is quicker but it takes off a top layer of the skin that holds in the flavour which gives the turkey a crispy finish when cooked. The turkey is then hung in a chilled environment for up to two weeks giving the meat its wonderful texture and full, succulent, traditional flavour.

To order your Christmas bird, please come and visit our Chapel Brampton branch and place your order with a friendly member of staff.

Our milk comes from only 8 miles away, from Newlands Farm Dairy.

Unlike other dairies, this milk is produced, processed, bottled and distributed all by the farm itself.

Newlands Dairy Farm

Homegrown Asparagus – The King of all Vegetables!

May 26th, 2015

After all the cold nights… finally our Asparagus is loving this weather and is growing like billio!

Our homegrown Asparagus is cut directly from the field and bundled, then into the shop within a matter of hours.

Because we love Asparagus so much, here are a few interesting facts about this magnificent vegetable:

  • The Romans were the first to cultivate asparagus more than 2000 years ago!
  • The Romans were also the first to preserve Asparagus by freezing it in the Alps for the feast of Epicurious in Jan/Feb.
  • Emperor Augustus is said to have built a special fleet of ships to transport the best quality Asparagus around the Roman Empire.
  • Rich in vitamins and minerals, its loaded with nutrients! It is fat free, cholesterol free and only around 4kcal per spear!

Stuck for ideas on how to eat the king of all vegetables? There are some fantastic Asparagus recipes ideas HERE.




It’s all going on at the farm!

Planting pumpkin seeds.


Planting more pumpkin seeds!

This week we have took advantage of the lovely weather and have been planting pumpkin seeds, watching the potatoes plants grow, and have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of our Asparagus – which is finally here and loving this weather! It’s all going on!

We also have a flock of sheep that have come to Smiths Farm Shop for their holidays! They are only here for a short while, so be sure to come and see the lambs. At first King Henry, the Kune Kune pig was not too happy to have to share his paddock with the sheep but it hasn’t taken him long to accept them!
