The day also featured seasonal produce from a Farmers’ Market, The Apple Orphanage, a hog roast and face painting.

Every year Cregneash welcomes hundreds of children to the farm to choose their turnips, which are supplied free of charge.

Niarbyl will be hosting a Hop tu Naa Mhelliah Supper tomorrow (Friday) with a three-course harvest supper, live music, a turnip and pumpkin carving competition and a fancy dress competition.
