Mothering Sunday Feast

Mothering Sunday Feast

Sunday 10th March 2024. 

We loved welcoming so many Mothers to our first Mothering Sunday Feast to be held in the new Mowhay today.

Feasting tables in the Mowhay decorated with Narcissi

Early March is early spring at Trevenna where the daffodils are almost half open. There are plenty of tulip leaves coming up and the buds on the rhododendrons are looking promising for a colourful show later in spring. 

Flavours of Mowhay Mothering Sunday with foraged gorse, herb knot rosemary and wild garlic.

 A welcome note


The salad tunnel provides some protection over the winter months allowing a crop of rainbow chard to fill the space with bright pink and deep yellow stems topped with dark glossy leaves. A welcome sight on any day. 

 Rainbow chard, rosemary, gorse, purple sage and parsley growing at Trevenna

We were able to add a few of our own rainbow chard leaves into the seasonal greens. 

The over winter parsley has thrived this year growing into a rain forest landscape!


Passing through the moors from every direction leading to Trevenna, hardy gorse is currently in golden flower. Gorse also appears in a few hedgerows on the farm providing floral ingredient with flavours from infused green tea to coconut in the spring. A surprising taste profile given the brutal appearance of gorse prickles! 

The classic ingredients of a margarita cocktail were mixed with gorse flower syrup to create a fragrant treat for our Mothering Sunday guests. 

Gorse Margarita 

Wild garlic grows on the the shady side of hedges in the fields at the bottom of the valley. Mothering Sunday is very early this year, with our own wild garlic crop to come a little later in the month. 

Wild Garlic Pesto - delicious as a spread on focaccia


A new rhubarb patch is being prepared just through the arch in the walled garden above the Food Forest, with over 400 plants arriving in March. 

Rhubarb & Custard Cheesecake

Our current rhubarb plants are young and may only produce a stem or two this year. We used forced rhubarb for the retro flavour combination of Rhubarb & Custard cheesecake.
