Sharing the Big Lunch surrounded by yurts

July 22, 2009

Bad weather meant we had to move Camel Community Supported Agriculture’s first Big Lunch event from our site at St Kew Highway to South Penquite Farm on Bodmin Moor, home of Cathy our treasurer.

We sheltered in the farm’s education centre from the strong wind and the rain which was getting even heavier. Our members mixed with campsite guests to enjoy a delightful lunch with a huge variety of delicious dishes. 

Everybody made such an effort to create amazing homemade food for all of us to share.  Broad bean salad, vegetable stir fry, pea soup, seasonal spelt salad, tortilla, quiche and lots of cakes disappeared quickly.

The children were able to enjoy themselves on a bouncy castle and play football in the barn.  Then they disappeared to seek further adventures in the campsite’s three yurts. 

Adults enjoyed folk music entertainment on harmonica and guitar.  There were smiles, laughter, singing and talking all around the table.   Jonny Blenkin, one of the campers, said:

“Thank you so much for inviting us. We had a fantastic time.”
