Purely Cornish is know stocking Alpaca sausages and burgers, Alpaca meat is lean and tender, with a taste similar to beef, although almost sweet. It is low in fat and cholesterol, and high in protein, making it the perfect alternative for the health conscious carnivore! The Alpaca meat meat all comes from Hendra Farm a traditional smallholding set deep in the South East Cornwall countryside. The welfare of their livestock and the environment is a passion - they pride themselves on the care and attention of their animals and birds receive on a daily basis. Their reputation speaks for itself!

The sun arrived today and I was one of the lucky one's to to see Looe Beach Bathed in Sun, Check out Love Looe The sun is out and so is the Pollen at Purely Cornish we stock Local Cornish Honey produced by bee's from the Cornwall Bee Keepers association , Liskeard Group. locally made honey is a good way of helping with Hay Fever and allowing you to enjoy the summer some interesting honey facts: Honey bees must gather nectar from two million flowers to make one pound of honey. One bee would therefore have to fly around 90,000 miles - three times around the globe - to make one pound of honey. The average honey bee will actually make only one twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime. A honey bee can fly as fast as 15 miles per hour. It takes one ounce of honey to fuel a bee's flight around the world. A honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip. Worker bees are all female. Flowers have bright markings and strong smells to attract bees and other insects so that they will pollinate flowers. Some also have dark lines called 'honey guides' which scientists believe help insects find their way into the flowers. A colony of bees consists of tens of thousands of worker bees, one queen and sometimes drones (male bees). The honey bee is the only insect that produces food eaten by man. Honey has always been highly regarded as a medicine. It is thought to help everything from sore throats and digestive disorders to skin problems and hay fever. Honey has antiseptic properties and historically was often used as a dressing for wounds and a first aid treatment for burns and cuts.

It seems like the first day of spring in Looe, I walked down from Hannafore this morning on my way into Purely Cornish and took this great picture it looks and feels like spring has finally arrived. On my way I passed the New Quay Side Center in West Looe, The Harbour Commission will be running a local market throughout the year in the new center, thus increasing the footfall in the town in the winter. The markets will be advertised widely, not only by the Harbour, but also by other organisations within the town. The centre is expected to be opened on Thursday 30th May 2013. The first market being held on Saturday 8th June 2013. At the shop we have just received a new delivery from Trenance Chocolate and the shelves are bursting with very tempting treats!!
