Harvest Celebration 2015

On Sunday 4th October we held our annual harvest celebration, which is a free event for everybody and anybody to come along to the farm and see for themselves what we get up to, and help us celebrate this years harvest. Although the Cornish weather turned from glorious Indian summer to proper autumn through the day, more than 100 people attended, with friends old and new, and people from as far afield as Devon and the USA!

Most of the team who packed away at the end of the celebration, finishing just as the rains broke.
We'd like to thank everybody who came along on the day and helped make the community farm what it is. Special thanks go to all those who helped in the build up and on the day itself - you are too numerous to mention!
