Meet-the-Hens & Egg Day…

Another date for your August food diary – a Meet-the-Hens and Egg Day from 10 am – 4 pm on Saturday 28 August at Doddington Hall and Gardens near Lincoln. Here you will be able to meet free-range hens in runs and houses in the Courtyard, and talk to experts about how to keep hens in your own garden. Free range eggs will be on sale, along with Scotch eggs made from free-range pork and eggs – up to 28 varieties! - and freshly cooked egg dishes. There will be free recipes to take home, and a decorated egg competition for children. Entry is free and there is no need to book.

Doddington Hall was built in 1595 by Robert Smythson, an eminent Elizabethan architect, and has been a family home ever since. Within the original walled courtyards are ornamental gardens and a vegetable garden, with wild gardens and nature walks just beyond in the grounds. Inside the Hall you can view collections of household objects, furniture, paintings, ceramics, porcelain and textiles.  See http://www.doddingtonhall.com/news/stories/meetthehens–egg-day-this-saturday-28th-free-entry for more information about this event.
