FUN was had by all the family at Great Garnetts farmer's market at the Barnston Farm last Saturday.

Julie and Jonathan Smith decided to hold the fun day and produce market, to heighten the public's awareness to the products available locally and in particular to their turkey and pork produce.

The event also allowed the public to see all the farm animals being looked after as well as drawing other food producers from the area to present their goods.

Mother-of-one Mrs Smith said: "The event was such a success we have now booked two others on October 14 and November 11 and we plan to make it a monthly event."

Homemade honey, soaps, crafts, meat, cakes and pies all produced locally were all on sale at the stalls.

Children enjoyed the farm tours, allowing them to pet the animals and watch them feed.

Visitors also saw bees at work on honeycomb.

For details of future events call Great Garnetts farm on 01245 231 331.
