February recipe: Pancakes

Dyson Farming Leisure puts you at the heart of the farm, with stays across Lincolnshire, West Berkshire and Gloucestershire.

Whether you visit in the spring, summer, autumn or winter, there’s always something happening which forms part of the circular farming system which is central to sustainable food production.

From drilling wheat to the bees buzzing around, every factor is important.

Starting this month, you’ll find recipes and farm-sourced ingredients in your holiday cottage, helping to bring you closer to the farm you’re staying on.


  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 300ml milk
  • 1tbsp rapeseed oil, plus a little extra for frying

Topping suggestions

  • Caster sugar to taste
  • Dyson Farming strawberries
  • Lemon


  1. Add the plain flour and 2 large eggs into a mixing bowl.
  2. Gradually add the milk, while whisking the batter until you reach a smooth consistency.
  3. Heat a medium pan until it is medium hot, then add a splash of rapeseed oil.
  4. When the pan is up to temperature, pour in the mixture and tilt the pan for even coverage. Cook for 1 minute, turning occasionally to ensure your pancake is golden brown on both sides.
  5. Turn off the heat and serve with the topping of your choice. Enjoy!

Where food comes from

We grow multiple varieties of wheat for milling, biscuit-making and animal feed. We grow enough wheat to produce 7,920,000kg of white flour each year.

Each year, we grow enough oilseed rape to produce 1,760,000l of oil.

It’s up to you what how you top your pancakes, but Dyson Farming strawberries make a delicious choice. Grown in our glasshouse near Boston, Lincolnshire, where we use technology to extend the British growing season. Medlam Barns, Butterfly, Ladybird and Bumblebee are a stone’s throw away.

Sugar is a great way to sweeten your pancakes. We grow sugar beet on our Lincolnshire farms – enough to produce 3,000t of refined British sugar each year.
