About the Event
The longest sunny days of Midsummer are not just a treat for us humans, they are peak growing time for our crops that grow and ripen throughout the rest of the year. It is traditionally a moment of merriment as Spring planting and sowing is completed and there is a brief pause to enjoy the sunshine before harvest begins.
As you know here at the farm we are growing (drought aside!) hundreds of different of varieties of fascinating heritage vegetables, herbs, fruits and edible flowers using ecological farming methods that will, we hope in years to come, leave the land in better health than it was before we farmed it.
So for this “Midsummer celebration”, Flourish would love to host you here at the farm with two of our favourite local friends. On Sunday 20th June Katie Moore, chef/baker founder of Allotment Bakery will provide a glorious afternoon picnic including ingredients picked from the surrounding fields while Suzannah Wansell, founder of Meadows, will welcome you to the farm and make sure cups are more than half full of refreshing drinks throughout the afternoon.
The event will begin with a guided tour around the farm with Calixta. After a wander through the fields, Katie and Suzannah we ensure you have a delicious picnic to enjoy throughout the afternoon. Our covered, open sided marquee will be set up for socially distanced seating areas with views across the farm providing shade or shelter as required by British summertime weather.
Ticket prices are £50 per person and tours will be staggered to start at 11am, 12.15 and 1.30pm – once you’ve finished your tour you will feast on your beautiful picnic – please select your tour time at check out. All guests will be required to leave the farm by 4.30pm. This event will be limited to 15 people per tour so please book early to avoid disappointment.
