The Apley Farm Shop stand at Cosford Food Fair

IMG_1901 What a day at Apley Farm Shop – the cheese launch happened wonderfully, the Delicatessen counter was brimming with delicious olives & cheeses galore whilst so many visited the Cosford Food Festival, the car park there apparently had to be closed.

In the meantime, Lisa in the Apley Bakery shared with me the finished version of a 50th birthday cake she’d made to order. I’d seen the cake just out of the oven yesterday – here’s the before & after.

What next – Summer activities begin on Wednesday morning, 27 July, in Pigg’s Playbarn. Activ8 & EKO are both running holiday clubs from Apley Farm Shop – EKO 5 Aug, 19-20 Aug & 2 Sept; Activ8 on 27-29 July, 10-12 Aug & 24-26 Aug (9-3pm daily).

I haven’t mentioned farming news for weeks – the first fields of cereal crops have already been harvested, seems earlier than usual. The butcher has these great summer offers – he’s got great blackboard painting skills too (it’s not as easy as he makes it look).
