On Monday 9th February Tregadillett Primary School came to us to learn about one of our traditional regional foods – the pasty!   The children have been learning about pasties in school and have designed and made their own take on the traditional steak pasty.  We were asked to attend the judging process of the pasty making to choose a winner.  Laura attended the school on 10th February and now the winning recipe will be made in the farm shop and sold both in the shop and served in the restaurant.  Pop in today to see the pasty on sale! The children spent the whole morning with us and took part in 4 different activities to further their learning.  Activity one was run by Sarah C (our lovely assistant manager) and was all about tasting the different varieties.  The children marked them out of 10 and thought about taste, texture and what ingredients made up the filling.  Activity two was run by Adam and he took the children outside to complete a Pasty Treasure Hunt!  A series of pasty related questions were hid in the garden area and the children found and answered them – there was lots of discussion going on for this activity especially when one of the questions was what was the heaviest pasty ever made?!  The answer is actually 850kg!  Equivalent to 3,500 normal sized pasties!  Activity three took place in the conference room and saw the children ordering photographs of the pasty making process from production of the ingredients and then moving onto making and finally serving.  The final activity was all about the crimp!  The Great Crimping Challenge took place in our upfront bakery and was run by Cresha and Louise D.  The children crimped their very own pasty and our customers then judged them throughout the day.  The three winners were awarded certificates when Laura went to visit the school the next day.  All in all the children had a great time and widened their knowledge about our famous pasty!

  • A little gem! We loved the Lifton Farm Shop! The quality of the fruit and vegetables was outstanding, as was the meat and cheese. As for the icecream, not only delicious but huge qualities. My favourites were the white chocolate and the pistachio.
