Christmas is the best time of year for getting together with family and friends that we don’t see enough of! To enjoy eating and drinking lots of lovely local, seasonal Dorset produce together over the festive season. What could be better?

On the fourth Thursday of November it was officially Thanksgiving over in America. A holiday time in which to give thanks for that year’s harvest. What us Brits would call a USA harvest festival if you like, a time to celebrate the good things in life with family and friends. A time to eat and share good food together in order to remember what we should all be thankful for.

This year has been so different from last year. In 2022 we were so hot that it was a major undertaking simply to make it through every day without a major fire. In the total reverse, this year it’s been challenging just trying to get the corn in to the barn dry enough because of all the rain. It rained on St Swithun’s Day, the 15th July. If this happens then an old wives’ tale predicts it will rain for 40 days straight and that was pretty much what happened.

If you didn’t watch the Channel 4 programme called Good Harvest, then I’m sure you will have read about it in the papers, or people might have mentioned it in conversation. It was a programme that was televised in July.
