Cream Of Asparagus Soup

Cooking and baking at home is something that was part of our childhood on the farm learning from our mom and grandmothers. It is something we continue to do with our own children and something we want to share for you to do with your families.

It’s the first soup we make of the season and a crowd favourite here at Murphy’s Farm, whether it be for the staff or the customers. Its such a simple recipe we’ve decided to share it with you!
