Weekend Life....Daylesford Organic Summer Festival 2014

Daylesford Organic Summer Festival, Gloucestershire, UK, 17 May 2014.

Long-time readers might recall that we went to the Daylesford Organic Festival with friends back in 2012. This year we returned: the weather was glorious and the festival bigger and better than ever! We took a farm tour, watched a sheepdog demonstration and brought home lots of beautiful Daylesford goodies (cheese, sourdough bread, a chocolate brownie, wine and three tomato plants).

A fabulous morning spent at a beautiful farm in the English countryside.
