It’s the month of love

It's the month of love – just as well, because February needs something to cheer it up – and here at the Farm Shop we have at least four Great Ideas for making your loved-one feel extra special. Great idea #1. Don't just say it with a box of chocolates. Say it with a whole hamper of chocolates – with some delicious home-made marshmallow cake, sugared almonds and a box of Tregothnan Earl Grey tea bags thrown in for good measure. Our hampers come in three sizes and, if you like, we'll take you round the shop, help you choose and then dress it all up with cellophane with a bow, ready for presentation on February 14. Can't fail. Great idea #2. Gift vouchers valid at the Farm Shop and The Glynne Arms. This is so that the special person in your life can use and choose. A favourite wine, perhaps; or some rare, small-batch olive oil or vinegar from the deli; or a surprise lunch at The Glynne for two. It's up to them: you just give them the voucher.

Our third great idea comes from Rob at the butchery, and we could hardly believe it when he suggested this: heart-shaped steak. Yes, really! He can trim your steak into a heart shape. He and the team will have a counter full of steaks next week – fillet, rump, sirloin – so come and choose your loved-one's favourite and offer to cook it just the way he/she likes (NB we also have a helpful array of mustards, horseradish and béarnaise sauce, to serve alongside your heart-shaped steak).
