Thanks to Rachel Whiting of Country Living Magazine UK for the lovely photograph.
This month, April 2020, marks the 10th Anniversary of Hen Corner, our Urban Smallholding in West London! We had been gearing up for all kinds of wonderful celebrations and, sadly, it turned out that we couldn’t invite guests to join us for the big day over the Easter weekend. Though, to be honest, I was still recovering from the biggest ever bakery days baking nearly 300 hot cross buns as well as bread for 80+ customers!!!
We have had a fantastic first decade as a business, meeting many wonderful people and enjoying fabulous opportunities with events, awards, television shows and many magazines featuring our encouragement to live more sustainably as we bring the country into the city. See more here.
This time of year, we would usually be off to the Country Living Magazine Spring Fair and be giving away free tickets for readers to join us, unfortunately, like all other events, it has been cancelled whilst we stay in to stay safe.
So, what are we up to here at Hen Corner and how can we celebrate?
Whilst our courses are postponed, we have started running FREE online cooking sessions as part of the Brentford Together community programme, these are open to all and require a simple registration to receive the Zoom link.
Our Micro Bakery is busier than ever, we are now baking on two days a week to provide freshly baked bread and buns (along with eggs, preserves and honey) to as many local households as possible.
10th Anniversary Competition!
So to celebrate, and keep our spirits up, we are running a little competition for our subscribers, with the prize of TWO FREE TICKETS to any course* at Hen Corner as soon as we are able to run them again!
