The ultimate comfort food is a lasagne. Accompany it with a delicious blend of fruitiness from Barn Farm Drinks and you have the perfect combination!
Who are Barn Farm Drinks? Barn Farm Drinks are a family run business based outside Manningtree. Founded in 2017, there was a noticeable gap in the market for quality farm pressed fruit juices.
In recent years, the juice market has suffered a decline in sales and in 2014, it was revealed that fruit juice often contains as much sugar as a fizzy drink. Therefore swapping for a real piece of fruit would be a much greater benefit to our health. Most of us had very little clue which juices were really low in sugar or which were actually healthy.
So why Barn Farm Drinks? They encourage consumers to enjoy on the go healthy drinks, and also highlight the benefits of farm pressed fruit juices. This is a quality way to take delight in the fruits of nature in either a 330ml glass or if you really want more-a 750ml glass. Every bottle is 100% fruit juice and is one of your five a day. There is also no added sugar. The berry blends are all pressed, pasteurised and bottled at Barn Farm, so you know as a consumer where it is coming from. Barn Farm is a highly ethical business and the sustainable farming methods include using an anaerobic digester to generate electricity from the fruit press waste!
Barn Farm offer a variety of flavours:
Raspberry and apple, Strawberry and apple, Blackberry and apple, Raspberry, blackcurrant and apple, Special edition clear raspberry and apple, orange. I really enjoyed the taste of the raspberry and apple.

This tasty pork lasagne recipe is a treat especially for those days when you feel a little ick! I usually use pork or beef but sometimes I use turkey mince to change things up a little.
