Dairy Fairies

With our gorgeous SS13 range taking inspiration from the beautiful Isles of Scilly we’ve been out exploring and recently discovered what is possibly the world’s smallest dairy. So of course we supplied them with a load of Handybands to wear whilst hard at work! Kate from Troytown Farm on the tiny island of St Agnes tells us more…

foraging in far west cornwall

posted on March 14th, 2013 by sian

One of our Graphic Designers, Elly, got out and about last weekend with a trip to the depths of West Cornwall on a mission to forage… Here she tells us all about it.

Last Sunday was a very special day in that I decided to make good a new year’s resolution that I’ve been making for the past five years: learn to forage. I hate spending money, and if there is anything free to be had I’m first in the queue and will come round for seconds gladly. Our countryside and coastal areas boast a great deal of edible delights for the (responsible) taking, and as someone who is happiest running around outside, it seemed only right to combine my love of all things natural with my inclination to frugality.

1 piping hot puffin pasty. count down to a cornish christmas…

posted on November 28th, 2012 by sian

As part of our countdown to Christmas we’ve decided to give the festivities a Cornish spin, with a few little tips, some tall stories and a dash of local legends to warm you up for the big day… This is Day 1…

Please be reassured: no endangered wildlife was hurt during the making of these pasties. We’ve substituted the puffin for turkey and come up with a rather Cornish solution to Christmas leftovers. There are quite firm and strict rules over what can/should/oughta be included in a ‘real’ Cornish pasty, including the traditional carrot debate, but we’ve bent the rules a little to add a bit of festive cheer.
