There’s so much going on that have overlooked sharing the great news that at Newport Show last weekend, Apley Farm Shop won the best food stand. We’re also at Cosford Food Festival on 25-26 July, Burwarton Show on Thursday 6 August & Beckbury Show on Saturday 12 Sept.

Fresh into the Farm Shop are Powys quails eggs, £2.65 per dozen. Plus, Gavin’s just emailed these photos of apricots & morello cherries growing in the Farm Shop courtyard (which he planted) & freshly smoked Apley Walled Garden purple garlic (this photos makes me automatically think I can smell it !).

Here’s one of my ‘picnics’ of snippets of news: ★ Just had a great beef review on Trip Advisor; ★ we’re delighted Tina (our super General Manager) is back having been unwell; ★ we’re all ready for Classic Car Sunday this weekend – there’s free camping available on Saturday night for car enthusiasts coming from afar; ★spot us tomorrow (Friday) & Monday in the Shropshire Star’s summer supplement; ★I’ve got 3 super students helping with marketing tasks for the holidays, which ironically makes me even busier, but at least we’re racing through lists of marketing jobs which otherwise never get done – google analytics, Apley App, ecommerce, Illustrated Crop Reports, leaflet distribution, new road signs, media pack, shop promotions, planning of our next 6 events this year, website updates & all kinds of other background marketing tasks which are invisible but make a difference; ★ Evelade Chic furniture is opening on Saturday in Apley Farm Shop’s courtyard, next to the very pretty Apley Plant Centre.

I’ve just spotted – yesterday I posted my 1000th blog – quite a milestone !
