How wonderful it is to celebrate the spring and summer months in Lincolnshire with the promise of some exceptional local produce grown on our county farms, just a short distance from your knife and fork. With a call for us to appreciate and use seasonal food more frequently, our features and advertisers include businesses who are championing dishes and menus which reflect local, sustainable, high welfare and products of exceptional quality.
Uncle Henry’s Farm Shop, Butchery and Café is located off the A15 near Kirton in Lindsey. The farm is a destination for family days out with the farm shop offering products from over 45 Lincolnshire producers; a welcoming café and a butchery stocked with produce from their own Lincolnshire Pork Co and much more.

To inspire your own cooking we have colourful and delicious recipes from Wolds based chef Rachel Green. Many readers will be looking forward to Rachel’s appearance in the Demonstration Kitchen at the Lincolnshire Show again this year. Meanwhile see her recipes on page 14.
