The village shop have just received the first order of this year's crop of Asparagus. This hand-picked treat is supplied by local supplier JL Ashby from just down the road in Polebrook. As it's only available between the months of May and June, it's always one of our tastiest seasonal luxuries. It also packs plenty of nutritional punch, packed as it is with high levels of vitamins A and C, potassium, iron and calcium. Better still, we don't have to travel far to get some!
