A welcome stop off on a recent visit to stockists in the North-West, The Hollies Farm Shop greets visitors with a beautiful plant display outside its long established farm shop. It’s around 60 years since it began life as an honesty box veg stand at the side of the road, and this family owned business has grown into one of the best delis you can hope to visit and now also boasts a Bakery, luxury log cabins with hot tubs, the Hollies Takeaway (that terms seriously does not do it justice!!) and a Gift Barn. Sadly I didn’t have time to sample the Takeaway’s vegan Pumpkin Burger or the Woodland Mushroom & Ale Pie but they sound delicious!
We’ve been supplying The Hollies for just over a year now and our Glamorgan Crumbles, Moroccan Cashew & Walnut Roasts and Stilton & Spinach Potato Cakes have been firm favourites with The Hollies customers over the winter. This week we’re sending in some bitesize tasters of all our products for The Hollies customers to sample at the weekend and we can’t wait to hear which of them proves most popular now the summer is almost here…I’m hoping our vegan Beetroot Bombs and Thai Mash-Ups win through – after all, these versatile creations are perfect picnic enhancers! We’ll have to wait and see…”
