Out & About
Christmas Bavarian Night
a great success
On December 19th Albion Farm once again joined together with the world famous
Fairey Band for a highly spirited Christmas Bavarian.
After such a great success in August with their Summer Bavarian, many people
were asking to have another one in December so Albion Farm duly put on a
'Christmas Bavarian'. The main worry at the time was the heating, little did they
know the snow would arrive earlier than usual and in full force. The toilets they had
hired managed to freeze on their journey over so panic stricken they set their
heaters on them which eventually managed to do the trick! With industrial heaters
blasting away, the snow started to fall thick and fast.
Albion Farm Shop
Their own herd of pedigree Welsh Black Cattle, a traditional hill breed of
suckler cattle, has been naturally reared in Delph since 1970, and has
recently been judged by top chefs to yield the very best beef.
In addition to their own farm-reared meat and eggs, Albion Farm Shop
also stock an extensive and varied range of traditional British Farm foods
from a number of carefully selected producers.
Their eggs come from their happy hens that are able to range the farm
freely.
Their flock of pedigree Dorset Horn and Polled Dorset sheep, together
with native hill breed of Lonk and Gritstone, thrive on the Castleshaw
Moor and Valley producing succulent, lean and tender lamb.
The Snow did unfortunately cause a few problems, but pretty much everyone made
it at some point in the evening. At 8pm things were looking a bit bleak, the starting
time was held back by half an hour and sure enough people started arriving in
droves either by foot or four wheel drive. Some even walked from as far as
Uppermill in the snow! The team at Albion Farm are keen to thank customers who
made that extra effort to attend and make the night extra enjoyable, and in addition
to the Fairey Band who themselves had a few casualties due to nightmare snow
traffic in Oldham. The main man himself, Stan Lippeatt, came all the way over from
Sherwood Forest then back again so he really does receive the award for extra
effort!
The evening itself was yet again highly entertaining with lots of Bavarian and
Christmas music being played and lots of fun and games taking place, all
accompanied by delicious Hog Roast Sandwiches, mulled wine and Mince pies.
Everyone was indeed entering in to the spirit of things and having a very merry
time. By the end of the evening the snow had been practically forgotten and people
were walking off into the distance arm in arm sounding rather jolly and festive.
Everyone at Albion Farm wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
