A day at our Walsingham shop, when we will be celebrating all that’s great about game, with venison butchery demonstrations, suggestions for game cookery and plenty of game available to buy.
We are busy stocking the shop with game soup, game terrine and game ready meals.
12 noon. Children’s Pumpkin Growing Competition: if you took home a pumpkin plant on Open Farm Sunday to grow on at home, this is the day to bring them in for weighing. Bring your pumpkin for weighing at 12 noon.
Followed by Demonstration of Venison Butchery with Julian Stoyal, deer manager at Houghton Hall. We were excited to see Julian and the deer herd at Houghton featured this weekend on the BBC’s Countryfile. In the butchery counter we’ll have plenty of game available to buy.
