BRITISH FOOD FORTNIGHT
Published 18th September 2017
My - hasn't this year flown! The harvest is in and "my boys" are busy planting next year's crops. It has been a rotten summer with the weather but we've so much exciting stuff to look forward to. The grapes down at www.fulbeckgardenscottage.com and vineyard are being picked this week. They've done well this year, with more juicy bunches on the vines. We can't wait to see how well they taste!
British Food Fortnight is fast approaching (23rd September to 8th October). Take a look at www.lovebritishfood.co.uk for lots of inspiring ways you can get involved - whether it's supporting a local pub/restaurant who love to use local and seasonal food, to visiting a new farmers market, to cooking a special British classic at home for the family or inviting friends around. There are so many ways to learn about this country's farming and food production.
Keeping it local but still on the harvest theme - why not attend the County Harvest Festival at Lincoln Cathedral on Sunday 15th October at 3pm. It's always a great service with the procession of foods and the display of produce which the ladies and gents from FeRN (Lincs) and the local NFU create is quite breathtaking!
If you're hoping to see us at some autumnal events - then make a note of Victorian Steampunk Sunday on 1st October 2017 at Louth in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Then you'll see Andrew and son James at The Bramley Apple Festival on Saturday 21st October 2017 at Southwell Minster, near Newark. And then we're back up in Louth for the Christmas Market Sunday 3rd December 2017.
Until next month!
