Learn how to make a festive foliage wreath at Rumwell Farm Shop

SOMERSET residents are being invited to make their own fresh foliage Christmas wreath to adorn their front doors this festive season with workshops run by the Rumwell Flower Shed team (November 2021).

The event will take place in the Rumwell Café on December 2 from 3.30pm and all materials and tools will be provided in addition to refreshments for all attendees.

Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the Farm Shop, which is located on the A38 between Taunton and Wellington, says: “We’re looking forward to hosting this festive workshop and providing people with the tips they need to create a beautiful wreath to decorate their front doors during December.

“Our Rumwell Flower Shed team members are experts in taking flowers and foliage and turning them into something stunning, so anyone who books a space is in for a masterclass. The workshop will be a great opportunity to spend time with friends, learn something new and really immerse yourself in the festive spirit.

“Spaces are limited and we’re certain that this event is going to be popular, so we would definitely advise anyone interested to book their space as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”

Tickets are £50 per person and include materials, tools and tea and cake. Online booking is essential as there are only 12 spaces available.

Booking can only be done via Rumwell Farm Shop’s website: https://www.rumwellfarmshop.com/product/christmas-wreath-workshop/.

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 product range soon increased, and the business grew. David and Anne’s sons, James and Jack, are now also involved, as well as their daughters-in-law, Sophie and Donna.

Rumwell Farm Shop has a traditional Butchery counter selling its home-reared and free-range pork and Rumwell Angus beef. Also on-site there’s The Rumwell Flower Shed, a Delicatessen, Bakery, Jam Kitchen, Food Hall, Wine Cellar and Gift Room.

Its own, home-grown potatoes are available, when in season, as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, mostly British-grown cut flowers, gifts and cards.

The Rumwell Café is a large and spacious building. The food prepared in the café kitchen is sourced from the Farm Shop, the Mitchell family farm, which is just four miles away, and other regional suppliers.

Families are welcome to the café and there is a menu especially for children. It also serves afternoon teas, roast carvery Sunday lunches and is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages.
