Whilst we haven't really had many rainy days, we did the ultimate rainy day activity - we completed our jigsaw of our beautiful design work that our friend Vanessa Stone has created for us. Lots of people have asked about her when they pick up our fliers. Do have a look at her website here.
Finally, don't miss an opportunity to have your own fun on our farm next Wednesday. We have our first Open Farm Event - details here. Expect farm tours, trampolining, apple pressing, pop-up farm shop with ethical clothing on the side, the Colchester and Ipswich sling library in residence, and much more!
It was the first pressing of season. Discovery and Scrumptious doing their very delicious thing. We have invested in a hydraulic press which is incredibly efficient and a wonder of physics, if physics gets your wonderment going.....
We will be helping the RSBP run an apple day at Flatford Mill RSPB garden on Sunday 24th September. We will have this machine working hard for us all day. Save the date!
Sign up for our mailing list to hear all our updates and for details about our first farm open day.
We have so much news but such terrible internet (who'd like to guess the company? - apparently the next slot for an engineer is 4th September.....). Rebecca is currently writing this in a Costa in Colchester with very wet feet and 100 emails to answer.
So for now three things:
1. Please sign up for our mailing list as we will be sharing our lovely new logo with you with a free prize giveaway and everything. We promise it will be completely worth it.
2. If you are London way come and stop by the Growing Communities Organic Market in Stoke Newington on Saturday - we'll be there with plums galore, discovery apples, courgette relish (#spicy), greengage jam, gooseberry cake (thanks Marina for freezing some gooseberries for us) and much more besides.
3. Here's a film of how much fun we're having. It's a John Deere come true.
My name is Romily and I have taken over the farm diary. I am 9 years old, I have two little sisters and I like swimming and dancing. My favourite food is cheesecake, especially with berries.
