At last, here are some of the photos from Apley Farm Shop’s Christmas Food & Craft Fair, taken by Steve Watts of A Decent Exposure photography. It ran for 2 days, 26-27 Nov, with local food producers & Shropshire crafters filling our beautifully decorated & heated tent. On both days, we broke records, which was wonderful news & fun for all who came to offer the delicious as well as those who came to enjoy it.

We’ve had some great feedback from the food producers including:

“There was a great atmosphere – you’ve created something really special.”

“It’s always a pleasure coming to Apley – we had a great day.”

This is my favourite: “I had a great day on Sunday and I think we sold a lot of Quickes’ cheese. Compared to a tasting I did in Harrods a couple of weeks ago, it was a resounding success !”

Feedback from customers included:

“Went yesterday. Excellent food and drink tasting, lovely crafts. Very busy but worth it.” 

& from another customer

“Lovely day had at Apley today. We really enjoyed the taster, children enjoyed Pigg’s Playbarn and now I’m enjoying your pistachio and parmisan nibbles! Thank you, will be back before Christmas xx”
