For many years one of our favourite moorings has been the pontoon on the Witham at Fiskerton Fen, and whenever we visit we always make a point of walking to Ferry Hill Farm adjacent the nature reserve to buy some of their very tasty free range duck and chicken eggs.
The farm was taken over about 18 months ago but the new owners still carry on the egg and preserve business as well as the small camp site adjacent the farm.
While out and about on a little drive on Sunday afternoon we decided to call in an buy some more eggs and bumped into the new owners who told us all about their new plan. One of the barns is currently being fitted out as a micro brewery. They already brew on a small scale but their ale was proving so popular that they have decided to upsize. They are, or were, just a couple of weeks away from the kit being fully installed and functional.
So watch this space for more updates.
