M&S Open Farm Day

Last Tuesday we were lucky enough to attend an M&S open farm day in Herefordshire, to learn more about British apples and pears. Many staff members from M&S stores across the South-West and Wales were invited to come and find out more about the growing process. This was so they could go back to their stores and sell the products better, with more knowledge and understanding about the fruit. We listened to several interesting growers and suppliers who shared their knowledge about the fruit and the upcoming innovations for British apples and pears.

We then encouraged people to purchase some fruit to claim a wonderful green adventure goodie bag.
