FARM Fest returns to Herts & Essex Community Farm on Saturday 30th July 12 – 6 with FREE entry and no pre-booking required. The music, arts and crafts festival is aimed at bringing the local community together at the tranquil Fold Croft community project.

Local musicians including Harlow Rock School, Jo Clack, Ian Treherne aka The Blind Photographer, Caitlin Brown and Zach Thompson will be performing, whilst over in the peaceful willow classroom guests can enjoy talks on topics such as foraging, whale conservation and dementia. Anita will be hosting a sing-a-long Disney Quiz for all ages!

There is no parking available at the site, with visitors encouraged to arrive on foot or via public transport. A limited amount of parking will be available for visitors at the nearby Thomas More RC Church on Hodings Road, about a 5 minute walk away. Disabled parking is available on site. 

The BBQ will be serving up burgers, sausages and pulled pork for £3 each, cans of soft drink for 50p, and vegan burgers and sausages for £2.50 each. The vegan kitchen will be serving up nourishing bowls of curry, chilli or tabbouleh & falafel salad for £3 each. Please bring cash as there is no cash point nearby.

There will also be reiki, tarot and alternative therapies available in the quiet orchard area hosted by Butterfly Effect Wellbeing, as well as a sensory space hosted by Roots to Welbeing near the entrance to the site. Simon from Fun-Filled games will be back with his home-crafted games, and there will be a range of stalls including cake stalls a tombola and old-fashioned games for everyone to enjoy with great prizes for all.  

All proceeds will go towards furthering the work the Community Farm does, including working with schools, community groups and providing fresh produce to the local homeless charity, Streets 2 Homes.
