Where to find us this year - 2015
Plenty of fun things in the pipeline, shows and demonstrations across the country. Keep up with my blog.
Spring Greens – Court of Noke, Staunton on Arrow
Saturday and Sunday 2nd - 3rd May 2015
At the beautiful venue of Court of Noke, Herefordshire, the theme will be The Land, HIT Alliance forum, displays of sustainable energy, gardening ideas, food, local producers and businesses. An opportunity to learn and discuss? Loads of hands on stuff for children to do as well.
Our Outdoor Kitchen enamelware shop will be there right beside the cafe.
Yes, the Outdoor Kitchen will be a cafe again at this event with a variety of soups on the go. If you want to be part of the Cafe please contact me. I am looking for at least 4 soup makers per day, to make a soup each and serve it during the peak times of crowd hunger. All the profit from the cafe goes towards Spring Greens. There is often musical entertainment while we stir, interested vistors chatting and loads of fun to be had at the Outdoor Kitchen Cafe.
Take a peep Spring Greens to find out what is going on. Meanwhile a new web site in the making.
Contact me to help at the cafe.

Humble by nature Big Day out
Saturday July 4th 2015 The Big Day Out
In July, we will be heading south into Monmouthshire to take part in this great sounding day of music, craft, fun for children, farm experience and outdoor cooking.
Genevieve Taylor is launching her new book, How to eat Outside on the 4th. It is full of great ideas for cooking al fescoe with different types of cooking kit. We have been invited and will be demonstrating breakfast recipes from her book. I will also be cooking a goulash to die for, as they say. Plenty of food, farm animals, bushcraft, story telling, local produce and of course an opportunity to buy some of the great enamel Kotlich kit.
Each year Humble Farm tries something new. They are the first small farm to use hydropnics. Come and see how it all works.
