We held our third winter wassail on the farm! With the numbers growing each year, its been our best so far. The bar was always heaving and the oldfields mulled cider was selling especially quickly due to the frosting night!
Much like last year pictures of the magic event attracted some interesting publicity from the some of the major newspaper like the Guardian and the BBC. But our favourite is the Daily Mails head line, 'Blacked up Morris Men court controversy as they traipse to an Orchard in 500 year old wassailing ceremony'. See the links below to form your own opinions! Gosh it makes us laugh!
