Super-tasty dates for your diary at Hartley and Neston Farm Shops and Kitchens
The Pig Guide is planning on taking to the (nearby) countryside at every opportunity over the coming months, specifically setting the SatNav for two of our favourite local farm shops.
First up, those big-hearted folk at Hartley Farm Shop and Kitchen (just up t’road in Winsley, nr. Bradford on Avon) are hosting a couple of super-seasonal events guaranteed to get us in the mood for summer. The Big Green Egg demo on Thursday 18 May will get you all geared up for alfresco dining in style, teaching you all you need to know about the Big Green Egg set-up (see pic), accessories and seven different cooking modes before sharing taster samples of the scrumptious results (free entry). On from that, our farm friends invite you to enjoy a luxurious afternoon tea in their garden, accompanied by jazz, blues and ragtime classics courtesy of the FB Pocket Orchestra – it’s all swingin’ along on Thursday 25 May (£20pp).
Meanwhile, Neston Farm Shop and Kitchen (in Atworth, just a short pootle away from Bath on the A365 twixt Box and Melksham) are gearing up for a very special Persian Dinner and Demo with charismatic Bath-based cookery teacher Simi Rezai, who is set to host a scintillating evening sharing her passion for Iranian cuisine and culture on Friday 19 May. The evening will begin with a cookery demo that takes us behind the scenes of simple, fresh, mouthwatering Iranian dishes before guests tuck in to the ensuing feast. Simi is highly regarded for her passion for sharing the ‘magic’ behind her country’s authentic food – don’t miss out! Book early (£20pp). And there’s more non-stop exotic foodie cabaret news to come…. on Friday 16 June, cook/bellydancer (yes, really!) Wafaa will host an evening of Lebanese cookery, dinner and dancing. Okay, so the dancing isn’t compulsory. But what a great way to start burning off the calories after your Lebanese blow-out! (£25pp).
Last but not least, Neston’s Little Farmers Fiesta on Saturday 1 July offers all manner of fascinating family-friendly activities including animals to pet and feed, tractor rides, storytelling, rugby tots, Wild Woods activities, bouncy castle and face painting – all in all, it’s set to be a grand day out that the little people in our lives will remember for a very long time.
