Try our homemade green smoothie
Get healthy with our homemade organic green smoothies that are available to buy from our online shop. We make our Green Smoothie freshly on the premises from ALL Organic ingredients. A complex mix of fruits and vegetables so a good source of vits and minerals.
Try our Wicked Pickles
Find our range of quality preservers in the farm shop under the name ‘Wicked Pickle’. ‘Wicked’ in a VERY GOOD sense of course as we use only the highest quality ingredients and also have a wicked time finding classic recipes and trying them out.. What better way to spend a rainy week in September than chopping chillies, garlic and onions and making RED HOT chilli jam! It keeps us, and our customers, warm right through the winter.
Another favourite has been a recipe from customers Phil & Dave (who travel from Liverpool to shop at ManicOrganic) – an authentic Indian wedding pickle from an early Indian cookbook! We LOVE this recipe which isn’t at all hot or salty like many Indian pickles, but is fruity and luxurious with ingredients like figs, dates, apricots, fragrant spices and even more.
Someone else we must thank in connection with Wicked Pickle is John Latham. John was in the shop one rainy day when we were trying out some pickles and he was so inspired, he went home and came up with our logo and label design the very next day! We do have some pretty awesome customers it must be said.

Why buy organic?
Organic produce is from a NATURAL and SUSTAINABLE system of agriculture which avoids the use of pesticides and prohibits synthetic fertilizers and GM ingredients.
1. Avoids Pesticides.
Over 329 chemical pesticides are routinely used in non-organic farming. Pesticides are often present in non-organic food.
2. No Nasty Additives.
No Hydrogenated fats and controversial additives including aspartame, tartrazine, MSG (google them, they’re not good!)
3. Animal welfare.
NO system has HIGHER levels of animal welfare standards than organic farms working to Soil Association standards.
4. Protecting wildlife.
Organic farms are havens for wildlife and provide homes for bees, birds and butterflies. In fact, the UK Government’s own advisors say that plant, insect and bird life is up to 50% GREATER on organic farms.
Genetically modified (GM) crops and ingredients are BANNED under organic standards.
