Advent Fair

Our final event of a very busy weekend was our own Advent Fair down on the farm. The weather forecast had waxed and waned all week, and on the day the weather turned out to be grey and damp, so thanks to everyone who braved it and came along, we hope you enjoyed it!

We had Christmas decoration and beeswax candle-rolling workshops in the Hive, where you could also pin festive messages on the wish-globe; in the packing shed we ran our ever popular cafe, with hot soup and mince pies and other treats; the farm shop looked very festive, and we were taking orders for our Christmas hampers; there was a campfire in the farmyard for those wishing to brave the damp; and entertainment in the packing shed began with the Land And Sea singers, followed by Pendeen Silver Band in their first ever performance at the farm.

Doves of peace on our wish-globe.

Our farm shop, full of farm produce and gift ideas (mostly edible!).

We'd like to thank the singers and musicians for providing entertainment, our volunteers for setting up / packing away / running the craft workshops / cooking and baking for the cafe / running the shop and cafe / building the campfire / helping to organise another successful event - and big thanks to everyone who came!
