Last Friday we were lucky to have a visit from Matt Wright, Great Food Club. Waterloo Cottage was reviewed by Anna Forgarrd over 5 years ago, but, Matt Wright (founder and editor) has not been to see us. It was interesting to see how much we have moved on since then
Waterloo Cottage has a flock of Llanwenog and Berrichon de cher sheep. The Llanwenog sheep are a welsh breed with black faces, small compared to some and easy to lamb. The Berrichon de cher are a larger sheep originally from France. We pride ourselves on keeping chemicals off the land and having no antibiotics in our meat. The ram is put into the ewes at the end of October to ensure that lambing is at the end of April. Angus feels that the ewes have rich spring grass to eat by then that gives their lambs great milk to start life with. It also means that they are lambed outside and not in barns. Our challenge this year is that the ram got into the ewes field, we maybe having the odd early arrival. Angus and Josh are checking all the ewes this weekend.
From butchers to brewers and everything in between the Harborough area has a diverse range of food and drink on offer.
As a director of Taste Harborough I would encourage you to look and see what is great about our local producers and businesses look out for the Taste Harborough logo, share the good news and celebrate everybody who grows, rears, catches, makes, sells and serves our amazing local produce.
