Mr Jinks

How lucky are we to get this view quite a lot of times a day? No really!. We wouldn't be without him. He has his own tag in the Blog so watch out for more pictures. A very timid cat.. Don't bother with the Che Che che thing.. It won't work.. Just ignore him for a while and let him get used to you and you might get a brush past one day.. The honour of being his favourite customer goes to Dawn from Wigan. A true cat whisperer that one.. She is the only person apart from us who can pick him up.. We love him to bits! Likes a good brushing. He has more than Rod Stewart. Has the ability to wrap himself up in a blanket. Hardly ever climbs these days but does love a good scratch on a piece of wood.. Knows the place like the back of his paw.. Donations gratefully received ;).

Vegan Bone Broth

This vegan version of bone broth just made. A nourishing briney taste. The mineral kick this time is coming from Shitake Mushrooms and Wakame and Sweet Kombu seaweed. Fast becoming a MOl classic.


Harvest - Gorsuch Orchard

October 14, 2015 by Dennis Walton

Harvest – Sept/Oct 2015


Gorsuch orchard has come a long way since 31/01/2011 when it was planted. We have had our first full harvest and we picked the apples over the last three weeks. The Rajka in particular have been prolific – almost 40 lbs from the 3 trees. We did not weigh the fruit from the Lord Lambourne, James Grieve or Worcester Permain as these trees are still a couple of years behind the Rajkas. One customer bought all the Worcesters in one go and these were only from one tree. The other 2 Worcesters had to be hard pruned (to within an inch of their lives!) three years ago but they have survived and appear to be quite healthy. Last winter one Lord Lambourne decided to curl up its toes and die and the decision was taken not to replant in that particular area. We almost lost one of the Rajkas this autumn too due to the weight of fruit. We did lose one branch but as you can see from the image Clay and I were able to re-stake it before anything serious happened. As of today, 09/10/2015, there are just 7 apples left on the 2 Lord Lambourne trees. We will be checking them next Friday. Come November any mulch around the trees will be cleared away, stakes and ties checked and the cycle will start again in January with winter pruning.
