Roast potatoes and greens from the farm

 So the other day me and my mum went to this farm we frequently visit - Plaw Hatch. They are a raw dairy farm (they produce and sell unpasteurised milk, cream, cheeses as well as pasteurised products like yoghurts). They also grow plenty of vegetables, have chickens for eggs, and sell meat from their sister farm. So our day trips consist of admiring the beautiful countryside, grabbing a coffee somewhere, and buying loads of good local food (also, did i mentioned they are BIODYNAMIC?! :D). 

Today, I used some of their produce to create this simple but tasty dish. I halved some potatoes and roasted them in the oven with ghee, then topped with some black pepper cheese, swiss chard and wild garlic sauteed in ghee, and chopped chives and parsley. Add some seasoning and viola! Good eatin' ;). All ingredients in this dish were from the farm (apart from the butter which was from a farm nearby).

We were admiring their baby strawberry plants, and they were kind enough to give us two for free! The start of my summer fruit/veg garden :)

This beautiful vibrant flower was shot at the garden centre where we had our coffee.

Have a wonderful day :)
