Local food means local wildlife

    Noakes Grove produces two types of local food

Apple juice from the lovely blend of traditional desert and cyder apples that grow in our orchard at Scotch Patch, Ellis Green and at the Essex Wildlife Trust orchard at Sweetings Meadow. We mash and press the apples ourselves, filter the juice and pasteurise it in 500ml bottles. Most are sold on the market stall run by our friends at Walden Local Food. The 2018 pressing will produce almost 250 bottles: pure juice with absolutely no additives and from apples grown without pesticides or chemical fertilisers. You can order 12 bottles for free delivery in or near Saffron Walden. £24 per dozen with a credir of £3 (25p per bottle) when you return your empties to the Walden Local Food stall at the Saturday market- Email your order pay on delivery.

Wiltshire Horn lambs most of which go to the butchers early in December. We sell the meat locally as half lambs, ready prepared by the butcher and packed in meal-sized portions, ready for your freezer. We let our supporters know by email when it is time to place an order. Almost all our lambs were sold to people who wanted live sheep and five were kept by us to add to our breeding stock. So supplies only two (male) lambs went to the butchers in 2018

Not food but some of our lambs are sold to people wishing to keep a few sheep on land where they live.

Logs for woodburning stoves or the fireplace: these have been cut and stacked in Spring 2018 and will be available seasoned and ready for use in 2019
