Apple Day at Lathcoats Farm

I haven't always been the best at keeping up with all my local area has to offer. I am signed up to emails about events in London but when it comes to what's happening in Essex I have to remember to search for it high and low on the internet.

Luckily someone at work mentioned Apple Day and I had no clue what it was all about other than it might include apples (duh). I decided to have a look on the internet and seeing as entry was free to the event I decided to go and check it out.

It was a perfect October day, dry, sunny with blue skies which made the day even better because it's pretty much all outside. Once we got to Lathcoates Farm they had several different areas to go off and explore, with a huge variety of pumpkins large and small and in all colours. I bloody love pumpkins and found it really hard to just choose a few, I literally wanted them all!!

They had a craft area where they were making wreaths amongst other things, a huge apple tasting tent where you could go and learn about the different varieties of apples they grow and taste them, cider and apple juice tasting where they were serving a cocktail of apple juice, elderflower cordial and gin which was amazing and definitely going to be recreated at home.

The little food market area was nice to wander around, I got to try some vegan Christmas pudding by Lillypuds and bought some lovely fresh bread, they had stalls which were selling lovely foods that would be great to stash away for Christmas.

There were a few activities for children such as the crafting area, a chance to try archery, and swings and needless to say the kids were loving the pumpkin patch and the animals. It's such a great way to spend a couple of hours especially if you have children, and Lathcoats also have an amazing farm shop that is full of amazing food and lots of vegan items which I was shocked and amazed to see, but I will definitely be going back to buy more goodies!
