Whats The Plan?
Lets enjoy the outdoors again!
Back for another year by popular demand! Rock up with your besties, and savour some of the best food and drink that our countryside can produce in the wonderful rural setting of a working farm in Berkshire . . . quaff that cider, slaver over that sausage & baby wipe up that tomato sauce!
Chill out to some great vinyl vibes, listen to some cool live music, put flowers in your hair, get the glitter out, and live with the Facebook pics for the next year!
If cider is not your ‘tasse de thé’ we have an entire plethora of other offerings to take your fancy – Pimms Bar, Prosecco, Real Ale and unusual Gins.
We won’t get into the history or provenance of either cider or sausages, less contentious issues have triggered the most vicious debates in culinary circles - but we can tell you this – whatever France and their ‘Sidre’ have to say, us Brits are the largest consumers of cider, and almost 60% of the apples grown in this country go to make it, and we love it!
So come and join us, Sausage N’ Cider on the Farm SATURDAY 27th May 2023

Where do we start?
Lincolnshire, Gloucestershire, Pork & Apple, Vegetarian, Butifarra, Botifarra, Frankfurter, Bratwurst, the Hot Dog, or even that culinary challenge, the Andouille – we all have our favorites. Closer to home we have the Home Farm, where even our very own Royal Family serve and sell the best of British sausages to voyagers from near and far . . . we can’t get enough of them
The provenance of the sausage is hotly contested, but it seems to us that chopping up some of the tastiest parts of the meat, packaging it in its very own tube, and sticking it on a stick in the campfire must have kept some of the hungriest Neanderthals happy...
We will be serving an abundance of sausages of all varieties, and of course, if sausages just aren’t your thing, we have all sorts of other tasty street food available, including vegetarian and sweet treats

We need a suit of armour to discuss this one! The topic of cider is fraught with argument over which is best, and where it comes from originally.
We can tell you this – originally, apples were sour, not to be eaten directly off the tree, so someone had the great idea of fermenting them. Real cider making is an art, a craft, and a skill developed over many generations, and pukka cider makers have good reason to be disparaging the commercial ciders who borrow the moniker.
Real/proper cider or Perry (my personal favourite and referring to pears and not apples being the fruit of choice)
Come and talk about your love of cider to some of the people who really know their apples, and who have chosen some of their favourites for you to tipple.
And of course . . if cider is not your thing, or if you love it, but seek variety in your life (!) we have a greatly extended bar offering, commensurate with a great British outdoor summer party
