Meend Farm News 4

We had a really busy Christmas with a book talk about the Great British Oak, an activity day for the girls at Inglefield House (HMSG), a fantastic Christmas dinner with Native Breeds and a series of Christmas food courses with Andrew Kojima, or Koj, our new Head of Food and MasterChef Finalist, not to mention the fantastic Wreath Making workshops. It was great to see so many familiar faces and meet new friends from the village at these events and we look forward to welcoming many of you back in 2014.

This year is shaping up to a be busy too. We’re starting with our first Supper Club event from Koj – Koj’s Burn’s Night Supper – on Sat 25th Jan.

Kather’s Kitchen will hosting an alternative Valentine’s dinner on Fri 14th Feb. If you’ve never been, these events are guaranteed to be a sociable night out with delicious food.
