Saturday 20th May 12pm – 3pm
Jamie's Farm Hereford will be hosting our annual farm Open Day on May 20th. This is a wonderful chance to see what we do in action with demonstrations from young people. It is also an opportunity to hear about the future of Jamie's Farm via our usual talks and interviews. We are very excited that our newly appointed Education Manager for Jamie's Farm Monmouth, Ruth Young, will share her vision for the farm, whilst Jamie will give an update on the building redevelopment and what is still to come. There will be delicious homemade cakes and lunches served, teas and coffees, additional talks from our team and visiting members of staff, farm and garden tours, quizzes and much more. Jamie's Farm Hereford is very close to the villages of Rowlestone and Longtown in Herefordshire (HR2 0ED), and almost equidistant from the bigger towns of Abergavenny and Hereford.
We are also looking for volunteers to help in a number of ways, mainly on the day or to bake a cake or two beforehand. If you are able to help with either of these, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01981 240012 for more information. We would be extremely grateful for any support.

Do you love cooking but lack the confidence to cook creatively without following recipes? Wish you cooked more but find it stressful planning and preparing meals? If so, this event is for you.
Our chef Rob has been cooking from the heart for many years and would love to share some of his secrets for how to cook delicious food on the hoof, first by teaching you some key techniques that can be used for a range of ingredients, and second by learning about flavour combinations.
Rob has worked as a professional chef at several award winning restaurants in Bristol including Culinaria (under Stephen Markwick), the Kensington Arms, and Maitreya. In addition to running the kitchen at Jamie’s Farm, Rob has catered festivals for over 1000 people as well as weddings. He is passionate about young people learning more about where their food comes from, and during their week with us helps them understand the benefits a healthy and nutritional diet can have. Last year he produced the Jamie's Farm Cookbook to encourage our young visitors beyond their time with us. Now we are inviting you to have a go too.
The workshop will cover a range of international styles and is set in the beautiful, friendly atmosphere of our Hill House Farm.
Suitable for all levels of cookery. Cost is £70 including lunch. All proceeds to charity.
