    Eat Local this Christmas - Festive Food Recommendations from Harker's Farm Shop

    Nestled in the pretty rural enclave of Clipston-On-The-Wolds in the Nottinghamshire countryside lies a hidden gem renowned by those in the know, including many top Midlands restaurants, for their exceptional produce. At the heart of the picturesque Blackberry Farm lies Harker’s Farm Shop, one of the most highly regarded butchers in the country, selling meat raised with the highest standards of traditional stockmanship in the surrounding fields. We caught up with the family-run buiness to get some recommendations for the Christmas dinner table.

    Castle Rock Brewery certainly have plenty to celebrate this month.

  • Let's talk about Nottingham's ginious Redsmith Distillery

    Let's talk about Nottingham's ginious Redsmith Distillery

    We took a trip to Redsmith Distillery to find out more about the award-winning gin crafted here in the heart of Nottingham and get an exclusive taste of the new Outlaw Gin.

    We met up with creator Wayne Asher at the small but perfectly formed distillery in Sneinton Market, where he regaled us with tales about how he took his first steps in the world of spirit making, a far cry from his former career in aerospace and aircraft engines. Following a stint as plumbing and heating engineer he was looking for new challenge and began searching for a project which would bring him joy, and a product which could bring joy to others. Inspired by a documentary on Sip-Smith distillery in London and their pioneering work with HMRC to legalise small scale distilleries, he knew exactly what he wanted to achieve.
