I’m so excited to be going to the Daylesford Harvest Festival in Gloucestershire this Saturday, 20th September. It’s a great way to celebrate a very special time of the farming calendar – the Daylesford Harvest. There’s lots of fun to be had for the whole family including activities in the Market Garden, Bee Keeping, Apple Bobbing, JCB rides and the famous Farm Tour with our favourite Richard Smith. Below you’ll see a full list if what’s going on:
