Easter at Apley Farm Shop

Although we were away, I heard that Easter at Apley Farm Shop was a wonderful weekend & Rebecca (our Marketing Assistant) has just sent me these photos – I love the Easter bonnets. Francis came 2nd in his school bonnet competition, all because he had genuinely 2015-04-08,-Easter-bonnet-winners-(4) 2015-04-08,-PPB-Easter-egg-decorating-(2) 2015-04-08, Craft Fair - Quilling demonstrationmade his bonnet himself. Even though it was a very simple designed, I felt very proud of him !

Apley was a busy place over the Easter weekend. We had great weather, allowing visitors to enjoy the traditional activities & events including an Easter Treasure Hunt, egg decorating & an Easter bonnet parade. Of the 8 bonnet participants, the winners were Xiaohan Wei, Erin Morgan-Brown & Yumen Wei. I think it’ll be the beginning of a great Easter Apley tradition.

In the Farm Shop, customers found delicious handmade Simnel cakes & Easter cupcakes & in The Creamery Cafe, delicious joints of roast local venison, spring lamb (which was a sell out) & turkey. For Easter Sunday lunch, the big hit was sous-chef Matthew’s chocolate orange cheesecake.

We felt it really showed that Apley is a top family destination all year round. We’re now busy organising our next event on 2-3-4 May. Saturday will be a Food Fayre, Sunday our monthly craft fair & for the bank holiday Monday, there will be May pole dancing, a circus school, a dance demonstration & fun activities & games for all the family.
