FROM THE MILL
Keep up to date with everything that's going on at Jordans Mill and never miss a thing.
Introducing our new summer and autumn menu which is already proving popular!
We’re delighted to include some lovely light bites, perfect for this time of year and some heartier dishes as we head into the autumn months.
For starters we have a full breakfast offer which is sure to get you going in the mornings. Why not try the Jordans full English, pancakes or new bubble and squeak options!
It was a nice day, so I thought I would go along to my favourite lunchtime venue at Jordans Mill. It is just between Langford and Biggleswade, good parking and the staff are warm and friendly too.
Over the last fortnight a small family group of Canada Geese have made their home on the bank opposite the Cafe decking. There is the male, female and 6 small goslings, which were fluffy a fortnight ago, but they are growing fast and testing their wings out on a regular basis, although they have not completely formed yet.
The parents are protective because a Buzzard or Crow could easily pick a chick up and fly off with it given the opportunity.
We are starting to see many of the late spring and early summer wild life appearing in the garden at Jordans Mill. The butterfly is one of the first joys of spring and varieties that are appearing in the garden now are wonderful.
We can encourage them into our gardens with a large variety of butterfly and bee friendly plants. They eat anything they can dissolved in water and love nectar from flowers, as well as tree sap, dung and rotten fruit; hopefully we do not have too much of the last two!
What’s there not to love about honey! It tastes delicious, has medicinal healing properties and keeps our bees busy pollinating our plants.
This month we are talking to Wally Thrale, our local honey supplier who tells us more about how it all began and shares his success.
