Summer is the busiest time of the year for us. Our main fruit picking season is between June and August so we are picking for our ready picked sales, and also for the natural fruit wine we produce under our “Fabulously Fruity” banner.
In addition it, together with Christmas, is our main fruit wine selling season as we attend a number of local shows and food fayres on our mission to convert Lincolnshire and the surrounding areas to the wonders of natural fruit wine! (and don’t get me started on the fact that our caravan site and B&B is pretty much full round about now).
In conjunction with our fresh fruit sales we also have a fruit wine tasting every Saturday afternoon on the farm. Our full standard range, and most of our limited editions will be on show in the selling hut at the end of the farm.
Our next road trip out with our “Fabulously Fruity” wines will be to the Lincoln City Centre Farmers Market on Sunday 18 July. This wonderful event takes place between 9am and 4pm on Castle Hill and is well worth a visit for the variety and quality of produce on sale.
A matter of days after our Lincoln visit and we will once again be appearing at the Driffield show. 2014 was our first time at this show and we were very lucky with the weather, and the enthusiasm of the visitors sampling our wine. Driffield has a bespoke food court area where we will be setting up stall for the day so come along and visit us!
The show takes place on Wednesday 22 July 2015 at the Driffield showground (postcode YO25 9DN) and is great agricultural and country show with lots for all the family to enjoy and sample. For more information have a look at their website here.
