It looks set to be a fun-filled afternoon. Children will get the chance to have their faces painted and also draw a frightening face on one of our pumpkins and our staff will help carve their designs.
“We are also hosting a fancy dress competition to find the spookiest costume. We hope we get lots of scary ghosts and witches, but children can dress up as anything they like and there will be prize for the best dressed.
“The Rumwell Cafe will be serving a special spooky themed tea, which is included in the ticket price.”
Tickets, which cost £6.95 per child, are available from the cafe at Rumwell Farm Shop. Booking is essential.
Rumwell Farm Shop is an independent, family-run, award-winning business owned by the Mitchell family. It was originally a potato store, when David and Anne Mitchell began selling their potatoes and free range eggs at the gate.
Due to customer demand, the range of products soon increased and the farm shop grew into the place it is today. David and Anne’s sons, James and Jack, are now also involved in the business.
Rumwell Farm Shop has a traditional butchery counter selling free range pork and Aberdeen Angus beef reared just four miles away on the family farm. There is also a delicatessen, bakery, jam kitchen and food hall.
Home grown potatoes are also still available as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, flowers, gifts and cards.
The Rumwell Cafe, which opened in May 2015, is able to seat approximately 80 people. The food prepared in the café kitchen is sourced from the farm shop, the Mitchell family farm and regional suppliers.
Families are welcome to the cafe and there is a menu especially for children. The cafe also serves afternoon teas, carvery on a Sunday and is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages. To add to this, it also has a separate gluten free menu.
The Halloween party at Rumwell Farm Shop will take place on Saturday, October 29 from 2.30pm until 4.30pm.
