Daylesford Organic Summer Festival, Gloucestershire, 19 May 2012.
On a wet and chilly morning a few weeks ago, we headed with friends to the beautiful Daylesford Organic Farm in the heart of Gloucestershire for their annual summer festival. I am a regular visitor to the Daylesford organic shops/cafe's in Notting Hill and Pimlico in London but this was my first visit to the organic farm where (most) of the food for the farm shops is grown or reared. It is a stunning property (owned by Sir Anthony and Lady Bamford) and despite the weather we all had a fabulous time. There were cooking demonstrations (with special guest chef Raymond Blanc), farm tours via tractor/trailer train , a jazz band, dog show (my absolute favourite part of the day..... I love photographing kids and dogs! I think I photographed the winner of "Your Child's Best Friend" category and "Dog Most Like It's Owner" but it all got a bit confusing as to who had won what;), a delicious sausage sizzle (with sausages and hamburgers from the Daylesford farm), cider tasting, bread making demonstrations, sheep dog demonstrations and lots more. I can't wait to go again next year!
p.s. If you live in London or even if you are just visting, I have just read that Daylesford Organic have a pop-up cafe on the roof of Selfridges. I can't wait to try it out!
