This weekend on both Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 June, it’s the [third] Shrewsbury Food Festival. Shropshire’s absolutely the UK’s food county, so it follows that it’s biggest town should host a 2 day foodie fest ! And of course, Apley Farm Shop will have a stand. Our staff have been preparing & stocking the vehicles going, ensuring they have the right stock & enough of everything – it’s a bit like going camping ! The fresh (& still warm) pork pies have just been delivered by one of our butchers, John, this evening. So come & visit our stand & introduce yourselves to us. We love meeting our customers & hearing your ideas.

For full details see:

Opening times: Saturday 10-6pm & Sunday 10-5pm.

Tickets: £6 adults, £12 families. You can buy on the gate on the day or in advance online. Tickets give entry for one day only. Families mean 2 adults & up to 3 children aged under 16 years old.

Where exactly will Apley Farm Shop be ? What’s our stand number ? tbc tomorrow – but beginning with A means we’re at the top of the A-Z in the programme directory !

I have no photos (yet !) of the Food Festival, so here are some lovely ones I took when out filming around the Apley Estate on 30 May.

On a totally different subject, but before too much time passes, I must share with you this lovely email of feedback we received on 20 June: “Was there last Friday with my mother and wife and wanted to thank Becky for impeccable service, where nothing was too much trouble. She even expertly packed some left-overs to be taken home. Cream tea the best I’ve ever had. Will be back at Christmas, got my eyes on a beef rib joint. All the Staff were welcoming and helpful.

Isn’t that fabulous ! So nice that he took the time to write & tell us. Running the farm shop complex 7 days a week, nearly 365 days pa is quite an undertaking & appreciation like this makes it all the more worthwhile ! Thank you Mr DB !
