Following on from the success of Spring into Smallholding, there is another great day out planned at Clonacody House, Fethard. The Smallholders Summer Picnic will be open all day on Saturday, June 25. As usual, entrance is €E5 for adults and free for kids, and there will be free talks and workshops all day as well as lots of interesting stalls and attractions.
The focus this time is on enjoying the first produce from our backyard farms and gardens, and taking time to relax. Eamonn O’Dwyer of Tipp FM’s ‘Down Your Way’ will be joining us, and he’ll have plenty to see!
Work is progressing well in the walled garden, with first new potatoes ready to eat on the day. Regulars like Ashgate Butchers and Tippy Chicks will be there, with hens, pigs and equipment for sale, live butcher demonstrations, and of course plenty of delicious food! We’ll also have some new things to see including an open hive display from North Tipperary Beekeepers, and childrens’ shows and workshops from
Little Big Top.
There are a few spaces left for stallholders so if you have garden produce, plants, tools or anything else you’d like to sell on the day, be sure to book your place online or call Lily on 087 612 8577.
