As 2015 comes to a close, it calls for a time of reflection, and what a great year we’ve had here at field&flower. 2015 you were good to us! So here’s a quick round up of what we’ve been up to this year.
In June we were crowned with three new shiny Taste of the West Awards! We won two Silver for our sirloin steaks and topside roasting joint, and also a Highly Commended honour for our 2-bone rib of beef. So maybe it’s time to beef up your next box!
We’re also very proud to have been awarded runner up in this year’s Observer food Monthly Awards for the Best Independent Retailer 2015. A huge thank you to all of you that took the time to vote.
The arrival of our 2nd field&flower pup!
Arthur. The apple of our Rib-eye, the beef to our burger and the pig to our blanket. Since June we have been blessed with our second field&flower puppy, who has four small paws, loves cheerios and is considering taking up a modelling career. We are hoping that Molly, our first field&flower puppy, and Arthur will be able to meet very soon! Arthur has been overwhelmed by the loving response from our followers and is looking forward to his first traditional family Christmas in Clapham.
The revamp of our cheese range
The revamp of our cheese range was a great success, and with the help of our very own cheese enthusiast Sophie Cooper, we have been able to offer you all a wealth of classic and unique cheeses straight from the West Country just in time for Christmas. A few of our new cheeses include the likes of Blacksticks blue, Tuxford and Tebbet Stilton and the show stopping Goddess. Unfortunately for us, the cheese had to be sampled, and with much persuasion, we so kindly obliged. You will find our cheese in three different handpicked one-off boxes, or by their lonesome in the farm shop.
We love being able to create one-off boxes as it allows for everyone to try a mixture of our products that they may not necessarily choose to put in their regular box or buy from the farm shop. This year we have added seven successful new boxes to our range…
The alternative steak box £44.65
The luxury steak box £62.50
… and will continue to keep adding to our range in the New Year!
I’m sure you have all HERD about, seen or read our new newspaper by now! HERD is the first edition of many delightful and informative bi-annual reads to come. We can’t thank our head of design, Lizzie Purchase, enough for all her hard work in producing such a great product that really represents everything we stand for as a brand. We really hope you all enjoyed reading about field&flower!
With the launch of our new cheese range, and Christmas being a time of giving, we thought what could be more fitting than introducing an abundance of delicious field&flower condiments to jazz up your cheeseboards, food cupboards and dining tables. We have a variety of different flavours from spicy tomato and camarelised onion to wild orange marmalade, which are sure to make the perfect companion to any wedge of cheese, cold meat or simply spread on bread
We’ve got our nets at the ready for 2016!
After the excitement of Christmas and New Year’s Eve, we all love having something to look forward to. Due to the success of expanding our Cheese Range in November, we thought what could be better than introducing a school of new fish to the field&flower family. Unfortunately our lips will remain tightly sealed until January, but all we can say is watch this space and we can’t wait to see to see what 2016 brings!
