Lady Hamilton, Marketing Manager explained “We’re running a competition to guess the height of the tree, with three great prizes: first prize is a year’s membership in Pigg’s Playbarn, second prize a Christmas hamper & third prize Afternoon Tea for two in the Creamery Café. To enter, just go to www.ApleyFarmShop.co.uk & click on the photo of the tree. Or complete an entry form whilst there.“
Apley Estate owner, Lord Gavin Hamilton explained “We were keen to set the tone of Christmas as the biggest & best yet at Apley, so we were delighted when our woodman found this beautifully proportioned & very tall tree in the Apley Estate woods.”
“It was quite a performance to install the tree”, commented Graeme Manton, Apley Estate Land Agent, “The tree was transported from the woods on a flatbed trailer & it was all hands to the task as we used the farm loader to put it up & hang the decorations.”
“We have a lot going on this festive season at Apley Farm Shop” enthused John Wesley, Apley Farm Shop General Manager, “All your senses will be awoken: You will SEE our lovely rustic Christmas decorations, SMELL delicious foods, TASTE the free samples offered by local Shropshire food & drinks producers, HEAR Christmas music & chat with the producers themselves & last of all, TOUCH the present ideas in all the Apley shops!”
“Tickets for all family Christmas events are available online. Just go to “Apley Ticket Office” on the Apley Farm Shop website. It was very busy last year, so we recommend booking early“ added Charlotte Payton, Pigg’s Playbarn Manager.
Customers have a choice of a wide range of hampers, pre-filled or tailor-made, for customers to fill themselves with their favourite products, creating unique & personalized presents. The Apley Bakery ovens have been working non-stop making handmade Christmas puddings, Christmas cakes & minced pies. Christmas orders are already open on the Butcher & Delicatessen counters whilst the Shop itself is full of ideal edible Christmas presents.
“We’re very proud that this year we won a Guild of Fine Foods Great Taste Award for our handmade mince pies, so they now have that extra seal of approval!“ added Farm Shop supervisor Lora Rogers.
