The Strawberry Stop

Round up of the Week

Posted on September 24th, 2014

We had another fantastic weekend at Abergavenny Food Festival this weekend – However it wasn’t a totally smooth operation from start to finish as we were faced with a shortage of staff, however we were saved by 2 lovely ladies Sarah and Flora who pulled in the crowds with their beauty and exceptional Strawberry selling […]

Best Show of the Summer

Posted on September 16th, 2014

Strawberry Facts

Posted on September 9th, 2014

So this blog usually contains details about our recent events that we have attended and what we have coming up. This week is different, I’ve been doing some digging about, and have realised that there is actually a lot more to Strawberries than initially meets the eye! Strawberries are not a new fruit and they can be traced […]

Our Feastival Adventure

Posted on September 3rd, 2014

So we have nearly recovered from our weekend at Jamie Olivers and Alex James Big Feastival. Set within the idyllic Cotswolds countryside; It was a weekend full of food, strawberries and music, and we are all confident that we left on Sunday half a stone heavier than when we arrived on Friday. It was lovely to see […]

Mid Summer Reflection

Posted on August 6th, 2014

So a another week goes by, we have had a quiet weekend so have had time to reflect on our summer so far…. It’s definitely been an adventure of unknowns – this is a brand new ball game for us and its been a total learning curve. We have had amazing shows, good shows, and […]

Strawberry Diversification

Posted on July 28th, 2014

So we got a nice little article in the Worcester News this week, it was a lovely little bit of coverage. But behind the cheesy photos and Strawberry puns there is actually a serious undertone. Agriculture is changing in the UK, and whilst we welcome technology changes which increase the efficiency of our systems, there is […]
