Come to our General Meeting – all members welcome – at Runfold, starting at 2pm on Saturday, 11 July. Hear about recent developments and challenges, including:
- Slow progress in finding a new, larger Site
- Our new Shelter
- Our new Compost Loo – it should already be in service and open for inspection
- Where we’re at as a business
- Meet our new Treasurer, Graham
- We still need a leader for the Marketing Group
- Community involvement: ‘Give and Gain Day’ visits
- More Social and Fund-raising activities in 2015
Come and have your say on FLF’s future. We have a great team but urgently need more help and member involvement.
There are two things you have to vote for this week, our new prime minister but, more importantly, for a grant for Farnham Local Food from Aviva!
Please could you also send the link round to as many other folk as you possibly can so that we can get more votes than anyone else?!
Vote for FLF on the Aviva Community Fund website.
We’re rather in need of some new tools, and so this fund application will help us and the volunteers manage the growing, in our very much hands-on way of working the land.
Thank you so much!!
I always find swede one of the hardest vegetables to cook with other than the usual mash & soup! I have tried a dozen or so different recipes and would recommend the following:
- Swede and Quinoa (or buckwheat) salad
- Indian spiced swede (curry)
- Roasted swede and feta cheese salad with balsamic
I have also tried spicy swede chips. For best results peel swede and cut into 1 cm thick long chips. Put swede chips into a sieve and run cold water over them then pat dry with kitchen paper. Lay them on baking tray and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over a little olive oil and then shake over either smoked paprika or mix of garam masala and chilli powder . Bake in a 200C oven for 20-25 minutes. Continue reading

Happy new year!
2014 was a pretty fantastic year for us at FLF, but I’ve got a sneaky suspicion that 2015 is going to be much more exciting!
And to launch us into the new year we have a new leaflet promoting the virtues of Farnham Local Food.
Please have a read, and send it (or the link below to it) to all your friends and families, to help spread the good word and to see if any of them would like to benefit from all that FLF offers.

With the large quantity of squash in the share in recent weeks , I thought a couple of slightly different recipes from the usual soup/curry/risottos might not go amiss! If you are looking for inspiration, the Guardian did a piece on their 10 best squash recipes in September 2013- — I can recommend the masala dosa but haven’t been brave enough to try the ice cream. (www.theguardian.com/lifestyle/10bestrecipes)
Below are recipes for a Roasted butternut squash enchilada casserole, a gluten free Butternut coconut & ginger cake and if you still have some squash left over a butternut squash breakfast smoothie ! Continue reading
The recipes that were in the yurt are posted below …. this week my celeriac turned into delicious crisps (thinly slice, toss in oil, salt and paprika and bake at 170C for 20-25 minutes) – apparently better for you than regular crisps .. well that is my excuse! Continue reading
