Spring at Nixons

 

We have had some adorable new arrivals in the pets corner this month!

Currently in pets corner we have:

-5 texel cross lambs who are settling in very well with their mothers.

-9 pietrain piglets who are now approx 8 weeks old. They are starting to get very friendly and love coming right up to the gate to say hello to everyone ad have a few head scratches 

-  we have also had  some smaller arrivals in the guinea pig pen! We were supirsed with 3 very tiny guinea pigs at the start of April! They are starting to get very active now and you can see them running about the pen for most of the day.

- theres also signs of lots of baby budgies hatching  in the bird aviary. The budgies are spending alot of time in their nest boxes so we will hopefully be seeing some new arrivals in there very soon!

The donkeys and alpacas are back out in their field next to the garden play area, they currently have two very cheeky shetland ponies staying with them for the next month whilst they have a yard makeover at thier normal farm!

make sure to come and meet all of our lovely pets!

*please note we dont sell food on the farm to feed the animals as they are all on a strict diet at the moment

The Joy of Picking Your Own Produce at Nixon's Farm Shop

At Nixon's Farm Shop, we believe that food tastes better when you pick it yourself. Our "Pick Your Own Produce" experience offers families and individuals the unique opportunity to connect with their food, enjoy the outdoors, and take home the freshest, most delicious fruits and vegetables. Here’s why you should make a visit to Nixon's Farm Shop part of your next family outing.

1. Freshness You Can Taste

Nothing compares to the taste of fruits and vegetables that have been picked at the peak of ripeness. When you pick your own produce at Nixon's Farm Shop, you get to choose the very best from our fields. This means you can enjoy strawberries that are sweet and juicy, tomatoes that are bursting with flavor, and much more. Freshly picked produce retains more nutrients and offers a superior taste experience compared to store-bought alternatives.

2. Educational Experience

Picking your own produce is a wonderful educational opportunity for children and adults alike. Kids can learn about where their food comes from, how it grows, and the effort it takes to cultivate it. This hands-on experience can spark curiosity and foster a deeper appreciation for agriculture and healthy eating. It’s a fun and interactive way to teach children about the importance of fresh, local produce.

3. Fun for the Whole Family

Our "Pick Your Own Produce" events are designed to be fun for the entire family. It’s an activity that gets everyone outside, moving, and enjoying the fresh air. Whether you're gathering berries, digging for root vegetables, or filling a basket with apples, the experience is engaging and enjoyable for all ages. It’s a perfect way to spend quality time together and create lasting memories.

4. Seasonal Variety

At Nixon's Farm Shop, the availability of pick-your-own produce changes with the seasons, offering a diverse range of fruits and vegetables throughout the year. In the spring, you might find fresh asparagus and early berries. Summer brings an abundance of strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Autumn is the time for apples, pumpkins, and squash. Each season offers something new and exciting to discover.

5. Sustainable and Local

By participating in our pick-your-own program, you support local agriculture and sustainable farming practices. Picking your own produce reduces the need for packaging and transportation, which lowers your carbon footprint. It also supports the local economy and helps small farms thrive. At Nixon's Farm Shop, we are committed to environmentally friendly practices and providing our community with the best local produce.

6. Enjoying the Outdoors

Spending time outdoors is beneficial for both physical and mental health. The act of picking your own produce gets you moving and provides an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the countryside. It’s a chance to unplug from the digital world, breathe fresh air, and soak up some sunshine. The farm environment is peaceful and rejuvenating, offering a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

7. Creating Delicious Meals

Once you’ve picked your produce, the fun continues in the kitchen. Freshly picked fruits and vegetables are perfect for making a variety of delicious meals. From salads and smoothies to homemade pies and preserves, the culinary possibilities are endless. Sharing a meal made from your handpicked produce adds an extra layer of satisfaction and pride.

About Nixon's Farm Shop

The family Nixon has farmed at this farm since the early 1930s when William Nixon and his wife Mary first lived here.

They had a milking herd and delivered milk to most of the neighbours and also reared pigs.

William Nixon then built a slaughter house and from that beginning started selling meat.

Gradually the shop was organised and the farms changed to the rearing of beef cattle.

There are three grandchildren now running the business.
