Kavey Eats – Kavey & Pete Visit

London Based Food Blogger Kavey took a detour via The Yorkshire Dales on her way to The Lake District to call in at Church End Farm the home of Paganum to say hello!  We’ve been virtual friends through the medium of Twitter for a while and have exchanged foodie goodies, Yorkshire rape seed oil & Chorizo for Kavey’s delicious homemade chutney & jams but now got a chance to meet in person.  This was only a flying visit as they were meeting up with other families on a Lakes Holiday based on the shores of Windermere starting later in the day but made a break from the long journey from the outskirts of That London.

The family sheep expert (Son William) did manage to get in a brief farming lesson on Blue Faced Leicesters (BFL’s) – Swaledale’s and the resulting Mules  and Kavey did meet some of the friendly BFL’s below.

My hospitality was not at it’s best but we did manage to share a glass of Elderflower Cordial in the garden and a cup of Yorkshire Tea by the Aga before a quick tour of the farm!

    Our stop to visit you on the way to our week in the Lakes was absolutely one of the HIGHLIGHTS of our entire week. It was a wonderful visit and you were a wonderful host. It was so good to meet at last, having enjoyed your fantastic meat for so long (one pair of rib eye steaks left in the freezer) and a priveledge to be able to meet the herds. And the pig!

    And William’s lessons were excellent. Also, the eggs we bought from younger son were delicious!

    Thank you SO much for welcoming us so warmly, it really was wonderful!


  2. Now I’m pining for the fresh, cool air of the Dales. There’s nowhere like them for “blowing the cobwebs away”. I’m off to read All Creatures Great and Small.
