Vintage Car Day

Vintage Car Day and Beer Festival at Croots Farm Shop

Derbyshire farm shop Croots will be staging its first vintage car day and beer festival on Saturday 28th August 2010.

The free event is being held at the Duffield farm shop as part of bank holiday weekend celebrations.

West Hallam-based Nutbrook Brewery, which produces Croots’ farmyard range of beers, will be running the beer tent. A number of Croots’ beers will be available on tap, including the award-winning Cow Juice ale which recently scooped a one star gold award in the 2010 Great Taste Awards.

Around 25 vintage cars are expected to be on display at the event, which starts at 11am and runs throughout the day.

“We’ve got such a lot of space here that we thought it would be a great idea to run an event over the bank holiday weekend,” said Steve Croot, who runs Croots Farm Shop & Kitchen at Farnah House Farm, Wirksworth Road, Duffield. “It’s already generated quite a bit of interest. It’s a great opportunity to try our Croots beers on tap and also to see a few local vintage cars from the area.”

The vintage car day and beer festival will also feature a BBQ serving up some of Croots award-winning sausages and other meat.

The farm shop has recently opened a play area which has a real tractor as its centrepiece.
