WILDLIFE presenter Kate Humble launched a farm shop and cafe with the help of Monmouthshire pupils.
Mrs Humble, who presents BBC’s Lambing live and Springwatch, opened the cafe and shop selling artisan and local produce at her farm, Humble by Nature, in Monmouthshire last week. The shop was opened by pupils of Trellech Primary school who entered a competition to create a cake recipe which will then be sold in the cafe.
Since opening in 2012 the farm has attracted hundreds of visitors and offers courses in animal husbandry, rural skills and cookery.
Mrs Humble said: “The shop and cafe is the next natural step for us to take. Not only will we provide a showcase for some wonderful producers in and around Monmouthshire but we will give visitors the opportunity to sit back and relax in the beautiful surroundings.”
She added: “The children from Trellech Primary came up with such fantastic creative ideas that we have decided to sell not only the first place cake, but also the second an third places during the summer holidays.”
The winning cake was created by Layla Rollings from year five, who created a chocolate, honey and lemon beehive cake. Second and third places were won by Lenny Kilner with his sticky chocolate cake, egg and dairy free and Ella Mae de St. Croix with her Humble Jumble Cake.
The new cafe and shop will be open Friday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm. For more information visit humblebynature.com
