Lunch@Abbey Home Farm, Cirencester

Today we are heading to an organic farm. Abbey Home Farm is located in the countryside just east of Cirencester and it has an organic shop, organic cafe and a whole host of eco-friendly related activities. We are here to shop and have lunch.

I’m pleased to find the cafe is licensed and I’m even happier to find that they sell a range of ales from the Stroud Brewery. I mentioned this craft brewery before when we were at The Birdcage and I had their Budding pale ale. This time I’m going to try their Teasel best bitter. It is full-bodied, quite fruity and even better than the Budding I had last time.

For lunch Rock decides to have the mixed salad with their farm-made hummous. I am having one of today’s special dishes – cheddar & courgette tart with salad. The Abbey Home Farm salad isn’t any ordinary salad – between us Rock and I can see all the usual salad suspects on our plates plus strawberries, pea shoots, aubergine, chives, nasturtium flowers, beetroot, quinoa and more. It is a fantastic riot of flavours and colours.

We explore the circular country walk from the farm before returning for coffee and cake. We share the very fine apple and almond cake with coffee. Now for some organic food shopping – I leave Rock looking at fabulous fruit and vegetables while I look for something else…….found it, the organic beer section!

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
