Local Christmas Shopping Moorgate Farm
If you haven’t been to the Moorgate Farm tasting days you are missing a treat. This local event draws together independent food producers. Most are local but there are some from further afield where a local source is not available. Some foods may be slightly more expensive, however, you are paying for the quality and care that goes into the production of the food. You’ll find vegetables, cheeses, cured meats, puddings, chocolates, different drinks, and of course Moorgate Farms own KellyBronze turkeys. ! For a Christmas experience, you’ll never forget, go to the tasting days and make sure you buy one of her fantastic turkey calendars. Book it into your diary
