Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival

This year we were proud to sponsor the 10th Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival which took place on the 26th and 27th September 2015.

On a sunny September weekend, Holmfirth welcomed around 38,000 visitors to taste a whole range of food and drink from over 30 different vendors. Helping visitors to find their way round the stalls was Calamity Cow and her treasure trail, inviting kids (and grown ups) to fill in the names of all the delicious food stalls on her map for a chance to win an exciting hamper prize.

As well as having our delicious cakes and award-winning ice creams on sale at Longley's shop, we also had a spot in the centre of the festival selling Longley Farm T-shirts and Calamity Cow books and badges (written and drawn by the fantastic Dr Simpo), as well as a life-size Calamity Cow for those brave enough to stick their neck out for a picture.

All in all it was a mooooverlous day, but if you missed your chance to say hello to Calamity don't worry! Rumour has it she will soon be making herself at home among the ice creams at our very own Longley's shop, so watch this space...
