Come and Celebrate with us

Exactly one week after we were able to secure Fordhall and I still dont think the news has sunk in, I know the workload certainly hasnt.

We received so many share applications from you all in the final week and indeed this week too; we are having to bring in new filing cabinets just to house you all! This is fantastic news but does mean that we have now got a bit of a back log in the office. We are currently working on applications received here on the 27th June so please do be patient with us. If you have an application which is for a present then please do let us know and we will send it to the front of the queue.

We are also busy organising the Celebration Dinner due to be held at Harper Adams next Saturday 15th June.

It should be a great evening and tickets are selling fast. They are a snap at £35 and this includes a free glass of wine on entry from our local Wroxeter Roman Vineyard, a full three course local and organic produce meal, a ceilidh band, games, a promise auction and of course great company.

We have had some great prizes donated such as a Tour around Highgrove donated by the hrh Prince of Wales, a day at Silverstone races, a Tour of Newmarket Stud, commissions for paintings, health treatments, holidays and more...

More information is available on our website or by CLICKING HERE

Life goes on..
Aside from organising the Dinner and trying frantically to get on top of all the share applications, Sophie and I all week have been at the Market Drayton Taste of the Town exhibition promoting the farm, Ben has been at Shrewsbury farmers market and today is at Shrewsbury Medieval Fair, our volunteer Marie-anne is at the Green Fair in Shrewsbury, and volunteer Dave is in the farm shop.

Please do come and visit us at one of the events if you are able. If not we hope to see you at the Dinner, but please be quick, there are not many tickets left.

as a proud share holder I really feel that having several good night's sleep is a priority for you all-share certificates can the nicest possible way you can truly say that you and fordhall farm are not going anywhere...share certificates can wait a few weeks !
