Adam Henson to officially launch Harts Barn Farm Shop and Cookery School


Adam Henson to officially launch Harts Barn Farm Shop and Cookery School

The new Harts Barn Farm Shop and Cookery School will be officially opened by TV presenter, Adam Henson on Saturday 11th June. This exciting launch event will be celebrated by an afternoon open to all, offering: great local foods, live music, cider tasting, craft stalls, pig roast and cookery demonstrations and the opportunity to meet Adam Henson. Come and join us for this unique day from 1.30pm to 4.30 pm.

The Harts Barn Farm Shop will specialise in selling products from producers based throughout the Forest of Dean and Gloucestershire, including the Harts Barn Farm. The shop contains a wonderful working 17th Century cider press and horse driven cider mill which will be used for seasonal demonstration days. The Harts Barn Cookery School will be offering courses and demonstrations throughout the year, many of which will incorporate locally sourced ingredients and produce. It will be offering a range of courses, clubs, demos and activities for everyone, from the businessman to the Brownie, including parties! A full course list can be seen at www.hartsbarncookeryschool.co.uk.

Harts Barn near Mitcheldean was originally opened by Sir Harvey Jones in 1996 and has gradually developed to form a unique centre with Arts and Crafts, an award winning Tea Room, Pets Barn Vet Centre and Business Centre. At its heart is a magnificent Norman hunting lodge, one of the oldest properties in the Forest of Dean, built by William Duke of Normandy (1068). The new addition of the Harts Barn Cookery School and Farm shop was part financed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).

The Harts Barn Centre embraces sustainable energy and the whole site is run on a bio-mass heating system run from coppiced timber from the farm at Harts Barn. It has just been awarded the Forester Green Business of the Year 2011.
