The end of the week brings the biggest food event of the year for the Shropshire Farmer – its the famous Ludlow Food Festival held at Ludlow Castle from the 7th-9th September and Fordhall will be there in style.
Ben has booked two large stalls for the Fordhall team to sell their wares. There will be hotdogs, burgers, fresh meat and signed copies of the Fordhall book, written by Charlotte and Ben Hollins themselves.
But, to enable all this to happen there is some serious preperation work going on this week, in Bens new butchery.
10 pigs, 12 lambs and 1 cow went to market and Ben and helpers are busy now getting the produce ready for the weekends show. I went in to take some photos last night (at 10pm) and Ben said “We’ve got a food festival to get ready for you know”, Couriers Dave reply was “I don’t smile!”.
So carry on they did, and they are in there again all day today. Why not go and say hello at Ludlow this weekend, I am sure the team will be happy to see you.
If your there around 3pm on Saturday, then Charlotte will be doing a talk called ‘Muck, Magic and Madness’ all about the story of Fordhall in the castle grounds – something not to be missed…
