Buriton Farms

Local beef available NOW from Bolinge Hill Farm

Susan Shone has some of her delicious local beef available - particularly braising steak. 

Mrs Shone is one of a number of farmers in the parish of Buriton who now sell their produce directly to parishioners, family and friends.

All the beef comes fresh, butchered into portions and vacuum packed - ready for freezing. 

Susan currently has packs of braising steak (and a few other cuts) available.

Simply contact her via: susan.j.shone@btinternet.com or on 01730 264207 / 07977 224468. 

This happened in Buriton

We apologise for the shocking photograph - but maybe you can help stop this from happening again?

On the night of Wednesday 1st April or early in the morning of Thursday 2nd April a dog attacked a flock of sheep near to the village.

Six lambs were viciously attacked and three were killed.

One of the mums, who had tried to protect her lamb, was so badly bitten that she also had to be put down.

Bluebell Walk and Farm Tea at Bolinge Hill Farm

An opportunity for parishioners, family and friends to take a delightful guided stroll along farm paths not normally open to the public - and opportunities (weather permitting) to see thousands of bluebells and impressive Early Purple orchids.

Farm owner Susan Shone will also provide afternoon tea back at Bolinge Hill farmhouse where visitors will be able to wander around the gardens. 

 

This event is for parishioners and families only. Dogs are welcome on the walk – as long as they are kept on leads – but not in the garden for tea.

Popular ?Farm Tea' blessed with glorious weather

Susan Shone put on a special spread for senior citizens from across the parish in July - an established part of the community's annual 'Down on our farms' programme of events, open days, walks and talks.

Susan had prepared a wonderful range of sandwiches, cakes and scones at Bolinge Hill Farm – and there were also bowls of fresh raspberries and lashings of cream.

Conversations ranged widely and the world was gradually put to rights as everyone chatted over cups of tea and coffee or strolled around the delightful gardens in beautiful weather.

Bee talk generates a buzz

Bees are absolutely vital to our lives. They don't just make honey but play a critical role in the production of all sorts of foodstuffs - from fruit and veg to meat and dairy.

In Buriton’s annual ‘Food & Farming’ talk, local expert Roy Godfrey described all the work that bees do in pollinating crops and how they are worth hundreds of millions of pounds each year to the British economy.
