KEEN foodies across Somerset are being invited this month (January, 2017) to enter their favourite recipes into a competition at a farm shop in the county.
Rumwell Farm Shop is looking for new seasonal recipes to hand out to its visitors throughout the year and is calling for people to put forward their creations.
Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, which is located on the A38 between Taunton and Wellington, said: “To tie in with our 20th anniversary this year we wanted to revamp the recipes we have on offer to our customers in the shop.
“We would like to do a selection of spring, summer, autumn and winter recipes, which use items that are in season and that people are able to get hold of from the farm shop.
“The winning recipes will be printed and featured on our recipe wall and customers will be able to take them home to recreate. Each winner will be presented with a £10 gift voucher.
“We would love to see recipes that perhaps use our famous strawberry jam, award-winning sausages or Aberdeen angus beef. We are keen for dishes that feature British grown potatoes too. We can’t wait to see what recipes people send in.”
The deadline for the competition will be 5pm on Tuesday, February 28, 2017. The recipes will need to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to Chris O’Conner, Shop Manager, Rumwell Farm Shop, Rumwell, Taunton, Somerset, TA4 1EJ.
Rumwell Farm Shop is an independent, family-run, award-winning business owned by the Mitchell family. It was originally a potato store, when David and Anne Mitchell began selling their potatoes and free range eggs at the gate.
Due to customer demand, the range of products soon increased and the farm shop grew into the place it is today. David and Anne’s sons, James and Jack, are now also involved in the business.
Rumwell Farm Shop has a traditional butchery counter selling free range pork and Aberdeen Angus beef reared just four miles away on the family farm. There is also a delicatessen, bakery, jam kitchen and food hall.
Home grown potatoes are also still available as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, flowers, gifts and cards.
The Rumwell Cafe, which opened in May 2015, can seat approximately 80 people. The food prepared in the cafe kitchen is sourced from the farm shop, the Mitchell family farm and regional suppliers.
Families are welcome to the cafe and there is a menu especially for children. The cafe also serves afternoon teas, carvery on a Sunday and is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages.
