Autumn is here, which means it's the perfect time of year to sample seasonal, local produce.
Hawarden Estate Farm Shop regulary holds foodie events throughout the year but the Real Food Fetes are highlights of the year for me. As an eager shopper there, it is a great opportunity for me to meet the people behind the goods.
We recently enlisted some willing friends and had a brilliant day at the Farm Shop testing lots of treats, listening to some lovely banjo music, watching the donkey rides, posing with scarecrows and enjoying a Cheshire Farm Ice Cream on the way out. Although it was a very busy day, there was a buzzing atmosphere and a wonderful community feel. Needless to say, we left with several bags of goodies, several cartons of cider and big smiles on our faces!
Check the Hawarden Estate Farm Shop website for more information about their upcoming events and look out for the Christmas Food Fete in November. I will see you there!
