Shropshire crafts on offer will range from bath bombs, quilted greeting cards, bunting, bobbles & hair bows, crochet items, oil burners, tea cup candles, hand turned pens, handmade soaps, bags & jewellery.  For more details of Karen’s glasswork, see

To see the Autumn harvest coming in & 2015’s crops being planted, join the last Open Tour of Apley Walled Gardens on Tuesday October 7th. Meet the Head Gardener at the Farm Shop entrance at 10am, returning for 12noon in time for an early lunch in The Creamery Cafe.

More fun will follow on 11-12 October – on Saturday October 11th, children can participate in The Big Draw in Pigg’s Playbarn & organised by the CPRE (Campaign for the Protection of Rural England). On Sunday October 12th, Hope House Hospice are holding a thrilling zip wire event in the field in front of the Farm Shop.

There will be plenty of wholesome fun during the half term week when Apley Farm Shop is again hosting the Spookley Pumpkin Festival, 18-19 & 25-31 October. Children can ride the pumpkin express daily at 2pm, select their own pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, carve it in the Carving Cavern (judged daily, with prizes), listen to the story of Spookley the Square Pumpkin (with its anti bullying message) & taste pumpkin recipes in the Creamery Café.

Elizabeth Beckett Skincare are about to start stocking the ‘Young Blood’ make up range, which they’re promoting on Wednesday October 22nd in the Creamery Café at 5.30pm.

Lottie’s have their home furnishings range in stock & are preparing for a Christmas fashion show on Saturday November 8th, to coincide with the Apley Christmas launch & lights.
