::UPDATED:: Samphire Smallholding Open Day: July 15th 2012

After a break last year, Samphire is set to open its gates again on Sunday 15th July 2012 for their Open Day.
Before The Artisan Food Trail was born, we paid a visit in 2010 and had a very enjoyable day.

NOTE: We've now added a slideshow of pictures from the event which can be viewed here

The open day is a well organised and friendly affair offering visitors the chance to savour a relaxing day of food, arts & crafts, education and entertainment.

There will be number of local producers selling everything from preserves to beer and even hand made dog treats!  One of the preserve makers will be Peachey's Preserves, another food trail member. It's a great opportunity to chat with them about what they do and hopefully stock up on their lovely hand crafted products. And of course Samphire will have a stall selling their fine rare breed pork pies and sausages plus more besides.

If you fancy keeping livestock yourself there will be some interesting organisations there, including a better hen rescue centre and local beekeepers who will be on hand to answer your questions. Last time Karen, Samphire's owner, gave a very interesting tour and talk on her pigs, so no doubt it will be on the timetable again.

To give you an idea of what to expect, Karen's Pinterest board here will show you the flavour of the day and judging by the growing number of pictures, the event looks like it will be an interesting and colourful affair. We can't wait to see Samphire's newest collection of fancy poultry.

Providing the soundtrack to the day and back by popular demand are the fabulous Rum Kelter. So many people loved their lively set of traditional folk music when they played at the last Open Day.

To keep you sustained and refreshed there will be food and drink, straw bales to sit on, tables and chairs laid out under the trees and tours around the smallholding.

The Open Day will take place from 11am until 4pm
on Sunday 15th July 2012
at Sycamore Farm,
Pristow Green Lane,
NR16 1PU
