Enjoy award-winning breakfasts during Farmhouse Breakfast Week


The jam is busy setting and the Aga is hot – Farm Stay UK members are ready to crack hundreds of eggs and fry thousands of rashers across the UK in support of Farmhouse Breakfast Week, which takes place from 23 29th January 2011.

Working alongside local producers up and down the country and preparing ingredients fresh from their doorsteps, members of Farm Stay UK, the biggest farm accommodation organisation in the UK, are holding all day breakfast events during the week with proceeds going to charity.

Andy Woodward, Chief Executive of Farm Stay UK comments: The members continue to win awards from Visit England and other tourism bodies for their breakfasts. A huge amount of effort goes into each plate and into these events, so I hope that people will pop along to try the breakfasts for themselves and to show their support for Farmhouse Breakfast Week and the local charities.

If youre in Dorset stop off at:

  • The village hall in Whitchurch Canonicorum, near Bridport for a good local breakfast and charity raffle.  Breakfast will be served between 9am and 3pm on Sunday 30th January with all proceeds from the breakfast and the raffle going to the Fortuneswell Cancer Trust.  Entry to the breakfast is 7.00 for adults and 5.00 for children.

If youre in Yorkshire, find breakfast at:

  • Lindsey Hitchens Farm at St Georges Court, High Grantley.  From 25th January 27th January, breakfast will be served from 10.30pm 12.30pm and 1.30pm – 3.30pm.  Tickets are available from Lindsey Hitchen on tel 01765 620618 at a cost of 15, and the money raised is being donated to ARC Addington Fund and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Entry costs 10 and all proceeds will be split between the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institute and Ross First Responders.

The focus for the 12th annual Farmhouse Breakfast Week, which is organised by the HGCA (Home Grown cereals Authority) is Shake up your Wake up.  One in four of us skip the most important meal of the day and this years campaign aims to encourage people to take time out to enjoy a daily breakfast!

Visitors to any of the Farm Stay UK breakfast events will certainly get one of the best, local and freshly cooked breakfasts available anywhere in the UK.  Steaming hot plates of local sausages, thick slices of proper bacon, newly laid eggs, and all the trimmings; proper crusty bread, homemade jam and creamy butter will be served at the events.

Farm Stay UK now has over 1,200 members who between them offer more than 1,250 different types of bed & breakfast, self catering or green accommodation.  Members stretch from the Highlands of Scotland to the tip of Cornwall.  Farm Stay UKs website allows people to search hundreds of properties in superb rural settings so couples and families can enjoy country breaks, short trips, rural retreats, business trips or longer stays on a farm in the UK.
