Ellises Farm Field Kitchen has joined the Street Food Traders at Minehead

Ellises Farm Pulled PorkWe have just had confirmation that Ellises Farm Field Kitchen will be at Minehead Harbour on Saturday, 28 February 2015, to help us celebrate the end of the very successful first Exmoor Food Fest.

Ellises Farm Field Kitchen have 12 hour smoked pulled, homemade frankfurter hotdogs, traditional breed beef ribs and slow roast harrissa lamb on their menu.

We produce mouth watering Gloucester old spot pork, sausages, dry cured bacon and gammon, artisan salamis, chorizo and air dried hams and cured meats from our Gloucester old spot pigs on the Blackdown hills area of outstanding natural beauty here in Devon. Produced and cured in a original old fashioned method.

What makes our pork taste so good is that our traditional rare breed Gloucester old spot pigs spend all of thier lives outdoors rooting around under the oak trees developing a truly unforgetable flavour and delicous crackling. All our pigs are fed G.M. free feeds, which do not contain growth promoters or unnatural additives and are raised to the highest welfare standards.

The meat is hung for a week to ensure the best flavour and then is  butchered here on the farm. Our Gloucester old spot sausages and cured meats are produced without preservatives, nitrates or additives.

Cracking Nuts to join the Street Food Market in Minehead

cracking nuts at croydeHello, we’re Cracking Nuts and we’re absolutely passionate about nuts, natural ingredients and North Devon.

We started Cracking Nuts early in Spring 2014, after it struck us just how moorish and tasty the humble nut can be. We got hold of a 200 year old German recipe; played around with it a little; and came up with a traditional range of sweet cinnamon, salty and chilli roasted, peanuts, cashews and almonds, all with our own, unique, modern twist.

As a family business, we are not ones to sit still. From devising new recipes at our base in Ilfracombe; to visiting festivals and sampling unusual flavours with the surfers at Woolacombe; we are always inventing, improving and finding new ways to bring nuts to the North Devon masses.

We can cook and serve nuts from our trailer, or table top, day or night; we can also provide our nuts in interesting cones, jars, bags and packaging, to suit. Nuts, of course, naturally make great high protein snacks, most of our nuts are fairtrade and organic. In addition, the syrup we use to coat the nuts is entirely homemade and from all-natural ingredients.

Cracking Nuts will have their stall at the Street Food Market at Minehead Harbour on 28 February 2015, the grand final of the very first Exmoor Food Fest.
