Yurt Opening and Wassail - Sat 19th Jan

Yurt Opening and Wassail - Sat 19th Jan

We have now re-scheduled our Yurt Opening event (having cancelled it in November due to the awful flooding in the area) and it will be on Saturday 19th January. In true Somerset style, we've decided to make the most of this time of year to hold a Wassail - a first at the farm since planting our apple trees earlier in the year. The poor apple harvest experienced across the country last season can only mean there wasn't enough Wassailing in 2012! We've invited local legend, Les Davies to lead the ceremony and there'll be plenty of local, mulled cider and a roaring fire for you to warm your cockles! For those of you that are unfamiliar with Wassails, click here to learn all about it (and make sure you come along to experience one first hand!).

Alongside the wassail ceremony we'll have plenty of other activities including an Interactive art installation from Mother Courage Arts which you can get involved with and explore your relationship with food, land and people; we have an Organic Bake-Off for your chance to win an eight course taster menu for two at local Michelin starred restaurant The Pony and Trap; Wassail lantern making; children's activities; hot food and drinks and farm tours.

Having won the Community Involvement Award at the Winford Scarecrow competition in October, which raised money for the Harvey Hext Appeal, we've invited little Harvey Hext to do us the honour of officially opening the Yurt for us during the event.

This is a great opportunity to come and learn about the farm, see our fabulous new yurt and in particular, learn about our exciting developments with the lottery funded Community Engagement project.

The Event is by donation only with all proceeds from the day going towards funding the installation of solar power for our yurt.

A programme for the day will be published on our website nearer the time.

We do hope you can join us in the celebration! Click here to register for your FREE ticket - this helps to let us know you are coming.

Minibus Transport
To try and minimise our carbon footprint at the farm, we encourage people to either lift-share or to book onto a Community Transport Minibus which will be picking up at Bristol hippodrome (12.15am) and Bristol Temple Meads (12.30am) and returning from the farm at 4.30pm.

We ask for a contribution of £5 per adult (children free) to cover costs for the minibus.

To book your place on the minibus, please select this preference when registering for your free ticket.

 

Do we deliver to you?

We deliver to Bristol, Bath, Chew Valley, Weston-Super-Mare, Frome and plenty of places in-between!
