Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

Visiting the Farm

on January 27, 2017

Last weekend I was meant to be travelling to spend the weekend doing a vinyasa yoga course but as my hip was quite inflamed and I’m not sure I’m going to be able to teach it longer term I gave it a miss. As a result I didn’t have a lot planned. Luckily one of my friends and her son were free so we arranged a trip to Craigie Farm.

It was a foggy morning but it’s still a beautiful place. They have a large number of fruit fields which you can pick your own fruit from in the summer, a cafe and a play area. What they also have that I hadn’t been to before is a pick your own egg section, next to the chicken run. The eggs that are laid come into little boxes so that you can easily collect them.

They were super fresh eggs, laid that morning and made great boiled eggs for breakfast.

Also the farm seems to be trying new veggie boxes with various winter vegetables. These were only £3 and had a good amount of vegetables in them. I got an onion, carrots, potatoes, beetroot (a small one), leeks, cabbage and parsnips. Not a huge amount of anything but enough to make a dish or two. I made three portions of parsnip and carrot soup, mashed potatoes to go with sausages, okonomiyaki and roast beetroot salad. Not bad for £3.

I’ll certainly be back again to buy more vegetables and to try to pick my own eggs.
