15 Jul flower farm
there’s been a whole range of business’s pivoting due to the pandemic, and since 16 april, flower farm has been one of them.
this 150 acre mixed farm has cattle, turkeys, chickens, fruit, and vegetables, as well as “pick your own” crops such as asparagus, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries, plums, and pumpkins. the farm has a butcher, sells fresh fish every weekend as well as bouquets of flowers, plus has a tea room that sells coffee, tea, cakes and light lunches and a taproom; they brew their own beer on-site.
as if they didn’t offer enough, they have now introduced their strawberry fields pub garden, offering a festival style vibe with two timeslots; a day session from 11am – 6pm or an evening session on weekends from 6pm – 11pm. i’m particularly excited about this one, as it’s completely different from your standard beer garden where tables have been crammed into an outside space, or the tables on the patio as cars drive by! we’ve all been there, adamant we will stay and that we are enjoying ourselves. the pub garden is in a wide-open space, has a pizza oven and other food options as well as a bar, with music playing – getting us ready for when festivals are back.
what has this got to do with events you may be questioning.. but from 26 june, the strawberry fields are starting live events with a bang, the first date being ed byrne amongst others giving his best.
i’ve booked a ticket already, and am definitely already a regular!
