The sun shone, the families flocked from Gloucestershire and neighbouring counties oh, and London of course and a great day was had by all.
The Daylesford Farm Festival seems to get better each year and it’s easy to see why with so much food, hospitality and entertainment laid on in such stunning rural surroundings – what’s not to love?
We had a great day out and it was great to see the farm in it’s full capacity rather than just the inside of the café or shop.
It’s easy to forget that amongst the glories of Lady Bamford’s Chic Daylesford, that this is in fact a fully working Organic farm and really, that’s the thing we should shout about more often – the frankly amazing creation that Lady Bamford has achieved, nestled in the delightful Gloucestershire countryside.
It was a fabulous day, my only top tip for next year would be to get there early before everyone descends !!
So …getting our priorities right, the first stop was breakfast …
Followed by an obligatory shoe shot on our favourite heart…
We then headed over to the Bamford barn for a spot of Pom Pom making with Lily (she’s still making it at home!)
And then we pootled around the stalls and chatted to our favourites including Ross from Ross & Ross Food who told us all about his Bacon Curing Kit (a best seller on NOTHS and perfect Father’s Day Gift by the way!!)
Lily found a gorgeous puppy in a crate and almost took him home…his name was Juno and Mummy also almost took him home too!
In the Children’s corner there was Chocolate decorating as well as Vintage Go Carting for the under 5’s and you could learn about our British soil and about creepy crawlies and worms with the help of the Ladies on The Soil Association stand..
We watched the old fashioned farming methods employed on the farm and saw the gorgeous and enormous Shire Horses.
And really, this is why I LOVE living in the Cotswolds.. 🙂
