Saturday 8th July turned out to be a beautiful sunny day and a very successful day for our Summer fair. The weather turned out to be better than the forecast predicted and the sun shone from the start of the day right through to the end.
All our stallholders arrived bright and early looking forward to the day ahead. The marquees and gazebos were soon filled with a wonderful selection of food and crafts for all the customers to enjoy. Our fruit fields were open all day too for people to pick lovely fresh fruit straight from the field.
The advertising campaign from the farm, around the local area and with the super feature in the Grimsby Evening Telegraph obviously worked. The clock got to 10am and a constant stream of cars came through the farm gates. With the weather being so good it was nice to see people enjoying browsing round the fair, taking time out to sit in the sun to enjoy some of the homemade cakes and refreshments on offer then perhaps look at some of the other stalls or pick some fresh fruit. Some of the highlights of the day were
- Terry Alford with his beautiful selection of turned wood ornaments
- Sonya Hundal from Greenfield bakers with a delicious selection of fresh baked bread (which sold out by mid afternoon!)
- Mary Davenport from Cotehill Cheese, near Market Rasen
- Seeing so many people young and old enjoying an Ice Cream from Dennets Ice cream of Spilsby.
- The smell and taste of fresh Grimsby fishcakes from Chapmans Fishcakes being cooked.
- A refreshing cold beer served from Message In A Bottle of Cleethorpes!
After so much work in organising and setting up for our fair it so pleasing for all the team at Peaks Top Farm to be rewarded with so many nice comments about the day.
Our next event at Peaks Top Farm will be our Christmas Fair on Saturday 18th November and Sunday 19th November. Keep an eye out for more details nearer the time!
