Country Fest 2015 in pictures

Today the rain had gone away and at times the sun was shining, so this afternoon I made my way to Country Fest, which is an annual show organised by the Westmorland County Agricultural Society (organisers of the Westmorland County Show) and held at the County Showfield, Crooklands.

Happily tired out from all that fresh air and the brisk breeze you come to expect at many country shows, I share some of my favourite images from the afternoon.

These enormous pastries don’t look nearly as large in a photo!

Kendal Mintcake Vodka

The new Kendal Mintcake Vodka by producer Mint Drinks Company – and I heard it tastes very good too (I was driving again, of course…!)

Kangaroo burgers

Kangaroo what? I must confess, I’ve heard of these before…

zebra burgers

…but I’d not heard of these!

The vintage tent

And now to the vintage tent…


There were also lots of crafts on display

Herdwick bags

Products made from Herdwick wool

Chicken house

A lovely new home for some very lucky chickens


Big red tractors – so I had to take a picture!

Meet Genevieve…

Len the calf

…and her lovely calf Len


And look at these divine little piglets!

Mary the Ayrshire

I first met Mary the Ayrshire at the Kendal Festival of Food – I think she was being a little bit naughty here though!

Sheep's head

And it wasn’t just the live animals who were cute!
