We are really excited to announce our involvement in a couple of big events in September.

Firstly we are being welcomed to the Burghley Horse Trials food walk to offer some delicious food to keep all the shoppers and horse enthusiasts alike fuelled throughout the day! Launde Farms will be joining us to supply the delicious lamb for our wraps. We know how popular the event is so feel very honoured to be there for 2013!

Brian has also been signed up to compere at the Rutland Food & Drink Festival on 14th September. This event is great as it showcases all the wonderful food and drink which is available througout our small but perfectly formed county!

We hope to see some familiar faces at both events!!
