We’ve just received Essington Fruit Farm’s latest email newsletter…
As the nights draw in and summer ends, the emphasis shifts at the farm. The maize maze is now closed and will soon be feeding our cattle. If you visited it this summer we hope you enjoyed it. We will shortly be making the draw for the prize to seeÂ Aladdin at the Grand Theatre, but as we say goodbye to the maze October brings its own events.
The pumpkins and squashes are ripening nicely and we hope to make a start on harvesting them this weekend. As well as making lanterns, try our lovely edible squashes, onion squash (looks like an onion, doesn’t taste like one!), little gem, and crown prince. The pumpkin season will climax at hallowe’en and ourÂ October craft fair on 24 Oct. Be sure to pay us a visit but please book in advance if you want a table for lunch!
We try to have a special bargain on our butchery most weeks and this week we are offering matured silverside at 20% off until Sunday 3.00pm! We will also be serving it on the Sunday carvery so you could try it first!
