NFU Pride & Provenance Launch

 Proud to be part of the NFU’s Pride & Provenance campaign which launched this morning at The Great Yorkshire Show.

STC Open Day

Yesterday (11 June) we held our Open Day in association with Leaf Open Farm Sunday. Over 700 visitors enjoyed finding out more about our work at Stockbridge, with tours of the farm and glasshouses, including an opportunity to see (and purchase) our LED tomatoes as recently featured on BBC’s Countryfile.  For children, activities included bug sweeping, helping plant a new area of Tansy plant to expand our Tansy Beetle Ark, making their own summer planters to take home and many craft activities.  

We were delighted to be joined on the day by Robert Ramsden from Delifresh who presented cookery demonstrations and showcased local seasonal ingredients. The NFU brought 2 young calves with them which proved very popular with children and adults alike, as did the vintage tractor from the Selby Young Farmers group.  When legs were weary many visitors enjoyed the delicious refreshments which were provided by the ladies of Cawood WI.
