Visit the Greenmeadow Farm annual family show

Posted on: Thursday 30 August 2018

Do you grow the biggest pumpkins, the heaviest onion or the longest runner bean?

Are your dahlias, geranium or begonia blooming?

Are your pottery skills polished and is your fruit pie plentiful?

These are just a few of the categories that will be judged at the annual Greenmeadow Community Farm Horticultural and Craft show taking place on Sunday, 9 September from 10am until 5pm.

This year visitor admission is half price and cash prizes will be awarded in various categories for vegetables, fruit, flowers, photography, cookery, wine and beverages, handicrafts with special categories for children.

There will also be a range of fun activities to watch throughout the day, including children’s races, animal races and animal agility exhibitions.

There will also be demonstrations in woodworking, weaving and spinning and milking in the parlour.

There will also be lots of opportunities to get hands-on with the animals and give them some special teatime treats or you can also find out how many toes a Rhea has and get up close to the albino African Pygmy hedgehog.

Farm Director, Sally Partridge said: ‘This is a fantastic fun day out for the whole family so pop it in your calendar now. The show has classes for all ages and abilities and it doesn’t matter if you are an experienced exhibitor or a first time competitor, you are welcome to enter and join us on the day. 

‘As well as exhibits to view there will be lots going on around the farm throughout the day. Our famous ‘Cuddle Corner’ will be open, there will be delicious refreshments available from Café Cwtch, tractor rides and all our usual and unusual animals to meet and enjoy. The fantastic ‘Iwcs’ will also be playing songs on their ukuleles for everyone to enjoy and even join in.’

Cllr Stuart Ashley, chair of the farm’s shadow board said: ‘The farm committee would like to thank all the exhibitors and competitors in advance for taking part and thank all of our supporters who help to make the show such a wonderful event.’
