This month we had the pleasure of guest blogger, Single Slummy Mummy, testing some of our fantastic Farm Shop products! She is also offering readers the chance to win a £50 voucher! You can enter the giveaway and check out the blog on her website here.
Okay, so not just pies, but that’s the beauty of this giveaway from Thorner’s Farm Shop – if you did want to spend your whole £50 prize on pies then you could. No one’s judging. Their pies are award-winning after all.
The idea behind this competition is that we all need a bit of a pick me up don’t we? Winter is coming, the nights are drawing in, (I’ve banged on so much about dark evenings on Instagram that I’m boring even myself), and really, a pie WOULD HELP. There’s no getting away from it, when the weather turns nasty, a cheeky cheese and leek pie can do wonders.
(Confession: this is a picture that I pinched from the Thorner’s website because even though they sent me a pie to try, amongst other delicious treats, I got over-excited and ate it before I remembered I was meant to take a picture. Also this is way better than anything I could take, so.)
Although the Thorner’s pies are award-winning and delicious in every way, they are about much more than pies. They are a butcher, so sell all kinds of fresh meats, as well as deli meats. When I was little my mum says that, in a bid to get me to eat, she used to leave little plates of ham and cucumber around the house so I would happen upon them and eat them, so I know a good ham when I eat it.
They sell cheese, quiches, fruit and vegetables, even fresh ready meals, and the beauty of it is that it’s all online, so you get all the wholesomeness of a farm shop without having to get your shoes muddy.
They also make cakes, and although generally I’d consider myself more of a homemade biscuit girl, the toffee apple slice is a think of magic and wonder. Put one of these in your virtual basket and you won’t regret it.
(I also make an exception for this ricotta and raspberry cake but you do have to make that yourself, sorry. Unless you want to pay me to make it and bring it to your house.)
You’ll also be able to get a full Christmas selection from Thorner’s online farm shop, including meats, sides and desserts. You could either buy some bits now and pop them in the freezer for that smug ‘I’m nearly ready for Christmas already’ feeling, or take advantage of their Christmas delivery service, where you can order online and have everything you need delivered to your door in the week before Christmas.
With so many small, independent businesses being effected by coronavirus, wouldn’t it be nice to give Thorner’s a slice of your Christmas food shop spend rather than just panic buying in a supermarket?
And if you do fancy a trip out, and are local to Pylle near Shepton Mallet, then you can also go along to their real life farm shop and be tempted in person by the pies.
Okay, so the best bit – Thorner’s has given me a £50 voucher to give away, so one lucky person can buy themselves all sorts of yummy treats from their online farm shop. Entering is easy – just do as many of the things as you can in the widget below. The more you do, the higher your chances of getting ALL OF THE PIES.
The competition will close at 11.59pm on 23rd November and full T&Cs apply.
