Naked Ladies

14th September 2015

A group of 23 Naked Ladies have appeared in our meadows! This eagerly anticipated annual event involves an autumn showing of these beautiful pink flowers, also know as Meadow Saffron (Colchicum autumnale). They occur in a remote corner of the farm and the group seems to increase in number every year. They give the name to one of our perry pear spirits, Naked Lady which is infused with Saffron stamens. Saffron is similar looking to our Meadow Saffron but which is actually poisonous. Saffron which we grow in the garden for adding to our distilled spirits, is the most highly priced agricultural product in the world at some £35,000,000 per ton!
