Shepherd’s Pie

A longtime favorite of Gloria Varney, owner, and chef at Nezinscot Farm Store is the classic shepherd’s pie. This week
In honor of Boucherie month at Nezinscot Farm Store we wanted to share our housemade Shepard’s Pie recipe. The dish will also be the featured special in the cafe so if you don’t get the chance to make it, stop in and try it out!

Making Shepards Pie
