We cook seasonal foods, often picking our own ingredients and following recipes to create interesting food and drinks that the children can try for themselves and share with their family.


Children picked elderflowers from wild bushes and then helped to weigh the ingredients and make the cordial. Children also helped to wash glass bottles and cut out/paint labels to create a fine present for their Dads on Father’s Day.

Picking wild blackberries and apples from our trees, gave us all we needed to make our annual jam….with some left over for crumble too!

Some of our culinary concoctions taste better than others, but we always have fun in the process.

After baking everyone likes to chip in with clearing away and washing up.
