Free Chestnut Roasting

Mark your calendars: Sunday 27 March 2011 9am to 11am
Just down Bumballa road is the Pinehaven Stud and Chestnut Farm. We are now in the Chestnut season which lasts from 25th March to 29th April each year.
The farm grows a number of different Chestnut varieties including Morena, Prolofic, Special, Purton’s Pride and their very own King chestnut.
The farm is so close to us and the public are encouraged to pop in and pick their own chestnuts. The farm has all the facilities required including toilets, barbeque and chestnut roasting too.
On Sunday 27 March, the farm is hosting a Free Chestnut Roasting at the shop to let us experience the delights of roasted chestnuts.
We will set up in Maple Lane (near the phone box) and serve free roasted chestnuts from 9:00am to 11:00am.
Many of us have heard of roasted chestnuts in books or movies. Here is your chance to experience the real thing with locally grown chestnuts.
If you are looking for a day out, why not call the farm and organise to make a day of it. Farm opening hours are from 10am to 5pm.
