Harvest Party Saturday Aug 29th


After last year’s epic event we will once again be hosting our Harvest Party on Saturday August 29th at Caerhys Farm, Berea.

This year we will be kicking things off much earlier with the farm gates opening at midday and festivities running on until late into the evening. We have got a host of talented Pembrokeshire musicians playing including Little Arrow, daisyb, Pembrokeshire Ukelele Pirates, Easy Street and Cariad. We will also have a DJ to round off the night.

At the start of the afternoon Gerald will be giving a guided tour of the farm and show people the ins and outs of ‘community supported agriculture.’ Caz will be doing the same but specifically for families and will give children (and grown ups!) the opportunity to meet the cheeky rear breed Oxford Sandy & Black pigs and beautiful Welsh Black cattle. During the afternoon we will also have Cooking Demonstration from Pembrokeshire Cook and a talk by renowned scientist Dr Claire Robinson on a subject close to our hearts which is the use of Genetically Modified ingredients in non-organic food.

There will be lots of other brilliant folk there to entertain the kids (and grown ups!) including Magic from Tom Luddington, Face Painting from Lucy Rees, Pizza Making Workshop from Torth y Tir’s Rupert Dunn and twig pencil making by Ben Hughes.

There will be local ales from Gethin’s Cider, Bluestone Brewing Co and the Hand Made Beer Co. There will also be a range of wine and organic soft drinks.

There will be a range of food there to suit everyone’s taste including a warm and cold selection made from COCA grown veggies and salads, organic burgers and sausages from the best pork and beef reared at Caerhys, pizza made in COCA’s cob oven by our talented peasant baker member Rupert Dunn and delicious cakes by Lou Luddington.

Tickets will be £10 for adults, £5 for ages 12 to 15 and free for under 12s. There will be free camping on the Friday and Saturday nights for those who want to make a weekend of it (but please reserve your pitch in advance by emailing Gerald on gm@caerhys.co.uk).

We are all really excited about August 29th but it will take a big effort by all involved to make it a success again. If anyone is able to help out on the day with the entrance gate, working the bar, helping with the kids area or just keeping the place clean and tidy it would be really appreciated…and in return for a two hour volunteer slot you can have a free entry ticket and free drink.

Get tickets in advance from Gerald at the Farm or from TYF Adventure on High Street, St Davids.

We hope you can make it 🙂
