Cherry Tree Farm products

We were recently sent a selection of Cherry Tree Farm products to try out. We were challenged to make 7 meals in 7 days! I have to be honest and say most of them went into packed lunches which my son and husband enjoyed :) I was sent a couple of suggestions to make other meals and the Chicken Tikka Wraps were delicious but we never got round to making the Warm Chicken & Potato Salad or American Style Brunch!Cherry Tree Farm

The new cooked meats are great for busy parents who want quick and easy meals. All of the Cherry Tree Farm range is 100% British, low fat, cooked and ready to eat.

The new product range includes:

Hickory Smoked Turkey

A spooky Creation Station session

Big Brother was pretty excited to be invited to a special Halloween Creation Station session. There were three Halloween makes set up for him and he enjoyed each one.

His first craft was a cotton bud skeleton
