    Bread & Cheese… Mmmmm!

    Blog 3rd February 2023

    We have hit the ground running and have been very busy in the bakery; we’ve already baked 100 loaves for Hounslow FoodBox, just throughout the month of January, thanks so much to our customers who sponsor loaves to top up our regular donations.

    Number Crunching

    Blog 5th January 2023

    After a lovely festive break, I like to look back with thankfulness and forward with hope.

  • We are now in the big countdown and all our planning, if we’ve managed it, will really pay off. No worries if you don’t feel ready, we’ve found that the key is to pace yourself and make lots of lists!

    Use your LOAF!

    Blog 26th September 2022

    You would be forgiven for thinking that this post is all about bread, well there is some coming up, but we have been thinking a lot about all the little choices we make every day and how they have an impact on not just our health and finances, but also the environment.

    Winners and Heroes

    Blog 22nd August 2022

    Hip hip hooray! It’s always good to give a cheer and, whilst we are jolly proud of our recent awards, we’ve also been delighted to welcome a team of heroes for the day, supporting Help for Heroes with a bee keeping experience for a group of wounded injured and sick veterans.

    Phew – It’s hot!

    Blog 19th July 2022

    Phew it’s hot, but you won’t catch me complaining…
    We’ve just come back from a fabulous holiday in France to discover that the figs are ripe and fit to burst, the bees are busy scooting around for the final forage of the season and our sweetcorn plants are reaching for the sky.

    Midsummer Madness

    Blog 27th June 2022

    I love June and, whilst it’s usually mad dogs and Englishmen that throw caution to the wind, we’ve been getting out in the midday sun – and have had a great time!

    Often with the best weather of the year, we’ve been teaching in schools, running around after swarms of bees and cooling off with regular swims in west London lakes.

  • Those who have known me a while may remember the years that I spent working with ACET teaching sex education in schools, now I delight in teaching hundreds of children each year all about ‘the Birds and the Bees’
