It’s all happening at Overton Farm on Saturday 6th October. Along with the monthly Farmers’ Market the Annual Fruit Day is taking place with the added excitement of a new Overton Farmers’ Market Scarecrow Competition. The Scarecrow Competition is open to all, young and old. As well as this open competition there has been a great amount of interest from local schools, nurseries and playgroups for the separate category of Lanarkshire Schools, kindly sponsored by Renewable Resources Ltd who is donating an excellent cash prize for school funds.
Clyde Valley Fruit Day is a celebration of the fruit growing tradition in our area, along with the market goodies visitors can watch chef demonstrations, wood carving, apple pressing, live music and gain interesting information about the Valley’s heritage. It’s a fun filled day for all.
As always our stallholders are on hand with some great local produce, Perthshire Preserves have a bountiful supply of autumal jellies made with apples, haws, rowans and rosehips which pair wonderfully with Carmichael Estate Farm Meats venison and lamb, Lochbyre will have their fabulous pork cuts and sausages, Alexander Taylor’s bread, homebaking from Vanilla Treats , free range poultry from St Bride’s, Overton Farm & Butchery with a full range of Clyde ValleyVeal, beef and homegrown vegetable, Renewable Resources with wind and solar power solutions and Caurnie Soap.
