Rumwell to host spooky Halloween Tea for families

FAMILIES from Somerset are invited to an award-winning farm shop this month (October 2021) for a spooky Halloween Tea.

Rumwell Farm Shop, which is located on the A38 between Taunton and Wellington, is hosting the tea on Sunday, October 31 from 3.30pm until 5.30pm to celebrate Halloween.

Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the Farm Shop, said: “Our Halloween celebration will include a table-based tea with an age specific activity pack including, colouring, wordsearch and mask making for each child.

“Youngsters will get the chance to scoop out one of our pumpkins and draw a frightening face on the front. Our staff will then take it to the kitchen and carve the design for them to take home.

“Children and adults are welcome to come in fancy dress and scary get-ups such as ghouls and witches. All forms of fancy dress are welcome, the more imaginative the better! We’ll be presenting a prize for the best costume on the day too.

“We’re looking forward to seeing some of the fabulous fancy dress that we’re sure children and adults will arrive in. All the children who attend will be able to enjoy either a chicken burger and chips or sausage and chips followed by one of our Bakery’s famous mini doughnuts. Refreshments will be available for adults too.”

Tickets for the Halloween Tea cost £8.75 per child and includes food, an activity pack and a pumpkin to create a design on, which will be carved by the Rumwell Café team for children to take home.

Adult tickets are £5 per person and will include a hot drink and a choice of cake from our selection.

Booking is essential and can only be made via Rumwell’s website.

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.

Tickets for the Halloween Tea, which are available online via Rumwell Farm Shop’s booking page, cost £8.75 per child and adult tickets are £5 per person.
