Stanley Common - Oakfield Farm
w/e 26 February 2017
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

Oakfield Farm

We went out for a drive one afternoon this week looking for inspiration for this set of images. Our route took us through Stanley Common and a spur of the moment decision took us into Oakfield Farm with the intention of buying some meat from the Farm Shop.
Riding Stables

The farm is also home to Riding Stables seen here on the left through the gate.
Stable Resident

One of the residents peered over the stable door as we passed.
Farm Shop

We made our way round the the shop where we we greeted by one of three farm dogs that came to meet us.
Nutbrook Brewery

Derbyshire HoneyBottled BeerOakfield Farm is not only home to riding stables, a farm shop (seen here on the right) but also the place were beer is brewed in the Nutbrook Brewery.

Bottled beer (left) from the brewery is on sale in the shop as well as, like most farm shops, a selection of vegetables. The shelves are also stocked with local produce including Derbyshire Honey (right).

But it was meat we were after , steak and kidney and sausages in particular. There were several varieties to choose from but we can heartily recommend the tomato sausage.

We were served by the farmer, Andrew who offered to show us round when I asked about taking photos.

He first of all pointed out the sheep that were grazing in the field behind the farm buildings.
Sussex Punch Horses

He then took us to a stable in which there were two Suffolk Punch shire horses.
Hereford Cattle

Andrew led us to a barn where his herd of Hereford cattle were feeding on the hay. Am I being a little heartless when I say they not only look good, they taste good too. We left Andrew who went back to prepare his next supply of black puddings destined for the shop. We hope to sample that next time we visit which we will undoubtedly do soon.
