Open Farm Weekend at Screveton Eco Centre Sunday 6th – 7th June

Open Farm Day Screveton

Hello to all, it is that time of year again when we have the Open Farm Sunday all over the country and I find myself once more suggesting to you to go out and see what is happening in your local area. I myself would emplore you to take a little journey over to the Eco-centre at Screveton to check out what they are and have been up to.

I could tell you loads about the farm but these days when I am not able to go over I read and follow the story through Simon at Quercus Community. This is the ongoing story of Life on a Care Farm in Nottinghamshire and gives a real flavour of the daily and weekly goings on at the Eco-centre. It is a great read and you should really really check it out

Ecocenter Scones

Simon tells a great story and I have known him from my bread making days. In the past I have told you all about the classes and group baking that I have done with the Community Bread club. They are always involved cooking up treats for the Ecocentre events, last year they were baking biscuits and cookies, this year they will be baking scones for Cream Teas in the Farm Kitchen.

They were practising making Scones at the last Community Baking Session and judging by the results on display I think we can be rest assured that we will be well looked after food wise if we head over to the farm on Sunday.  I would also suggest that you really should or could go over to support them on Sunday. There will also be cakes from Gail our mentors recipes. What might they be? Chocolate with Butter Cream, Farmhouse Cake, Lemon Drizzle cake and Victoria Sponge. If you go and want the recipe then mail me and I might share 🙂

Have I overdone the advertorial? I hope that I have to be honest as it is such a good cause and a good day out at the Open Farm Sunday and I really hope that if you cannot make it to Screveton that you find a farm near to you to visit. If I haven’t keep reading.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!
