FROGMARY GREEN FARM EASTER FAYRE 2018
We have been holding Open Farm Sunday - which is a larger event than the Easter Fayre - for six years and many visitors were asking if we could open our farm up for other events, so we adapted this event to be very much a family day out. Entry is free and it's a great opportunity to let children run free and enjoy the outdoors.
We really enjoy seeing visitors leave smiling and happy and it's a real joy to receive positive comments both on the day and later on social media. We were surprised at how much of a success last year's event was, so we haven't changed much at all. Emily's Groom Room will be back with the Fun Family Dog Show, the Easter Egg Trail will keep the little ones busy...with plenty more for all the family!
Our hope is that all visitors to the Easter Fayre will make some new discoveries about farming, animals and the great local food that we are very lucky to have on our doorstep - and that the time spent outdoors with family and friends is very much enjoyed by all. We're certainly looking forward to seeing everyone on the farm at what we hope to be, another successful Easter Fayre!
SNOW DAYS FOR ALL!
Farming has been rather restricted by rain or snow this past month. The snow closed the roads in the area for about 48 hours and we are still feeling the effect and trying to catch up some two weeks later.
The extreme weather certainly caused a huge amount of disruption across the country and like us, many farms, businesses and places of work are still getting back to normal. Looking out the window now, you wouldn't believe that our lakes were frozen over not even a fortnight ago!
Our farm classroom at Frogmary Green Farm has been nominated for a prestigious planning industry award!
We're absolutely thrilled that The S.H.E.D has been been nominated for such an exciting award. We'll have to wait until 24th May to see how we do. In the mean time, you can read more about our nomination below >
An innovative farm classroom, The S.H.E.D (Schools’ Health and Educational Den) at Frogmary Green Farm in South Petherton is a finalist in the category for Excellence in Planning for Health and Wellbeing at the Royal Town Planning Institute’s (RTPI) Awards for Planning Excellence 2018.
The RTPI Awards are the most established and respected awards in the UK planning industry. Running for over 40 years, they celebrate exceptional examples of planning and the contribution planners make to society. An award winning arable and poultry farm at South Petherton in South Somerset run by Nick and Claire Bragg, has brought the classroom to the countryside in conjunction with Somerset Public Health giving children a hands-on ‘Field to Fork’ experience of the links between food production, cooking and healthy eating and how farming cares for the environment.
