A Sparkling tea party with an Asparagus theme was enjoyed by guests including Henry Sandon MBE, Charles Campion, the Asparamancer Jemima Packington and Gus the Aspara Gus man!

On one of the first beautiful days of an English summer “Farmstay Worcestershire” hosted A Sparkling Tea Party at the classic Farmstay property, Home Farmhouse in Upper Strensham. The active Worcestershire Farmstay group made an opportunity to network with local businesses and encourage more potential members to join their expanding group of high quality B&B and self-catering accommodation on Farms and Country properties.

To tempt taste buds with an asparagus theme, the laden tea table offered Scones with Asparagus jam, Asparagus Frittata, Asparagus and wensleydale tarts and homemade bread asparagus rolls – not to mention the many delicious home made cakes which make Farmstay’s such popular properties to stay in for a short break or longer.

Henry Sandon MBE chatted to guests about the Antiques roadshow and Charles Campion the slow food guru gave a fascinating talk about local Worcester produce, of course Asparagus during the season 23 April to 21 June and also some history about the famous lamprey. This prehistoric fish was the speciality of Worcester accompanied by Worcestershire sauce and baked in a pie for the royal family since the 1400’s.

Farmstay Worcestershire invites high quality B&B’s and Self catering properties to get in touch regarding the advantages of membership with their regional director, Lucy Harris or contact Farmstay Head Office at Stoneleigh.
