Upton St Leonard`s Flower Show 2021

11th September 2021

Today we entered our very first village show in Upton Saint Leonards and much to our surprise we came away with a fantastic haul of awards.

4 first places and 4 second places beating many of the villages regular winners.  Next year we hope to enter even more of our vegetables, chutneys and cakes.

This show has given us real inspiration to grow different varieties of vegetables that we can use to expand the chutney range we already have. 

Sharpness Christmas Market

20th November 2021

Today was our first ever fayre in Sharpness, Gloucester. The local village hall was the perfect location for our first attempt.
Our homemade selection of chutneys, piccalilli, curd and marmalade proved extremely popular with our three citrus marmalade being the top seller of the day. 
With it being Christmas we added some homemade reindeer chocolate and Santa sweetie cones which not only went down a treat but gave our table a festive twist. 

Richmond villages Christmas Fayre

4th December 2021

Today we set up our stall in the beautiful Richmond village. With lots of Christmas trees, mulled wine and carol singers to get us in the festive spirit. It was lovely to meet all the residents and their families who especially liked our mini jars as they make the perfect stocking filler.
Our red onion chutney sold out it was so popular closely followed by the lemon curd. Our homemade Piccalilli also proved popular.
Hopefully we can make a return visit here very soon.

Sharpness Community Market

Sunday 28th February 

We were back at Sharpness today for their monthly market, at the village hall this time though. This was a busy market with a good choice of craft stalls. We added some new display stands to our stall to improve the look of the display which made it easier for people to see what we were selling.  We are sure to be back at this event in the future. 

Coopers Edge Craft Market

Saturday 12th March

We came back to coopers edge for the second time. We used this to try out our new set up and stands. We also had new 3D printed card reader and business card holder by a local company which looked really smart. 
Unfortunately the market was not as busy as we were hoping but it was the perfect opportunity to catch up and also meet new market holders to find new markets to reach new customers.
