At the turn of the autumn season, we were delighted to welcome our community to an activity-filled day at Daylesford farm.
Bamford at the Harvest Festival
Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us for the Harvest Festival, and to all our visitors and partners who made the day so special. We loved welcoming everyone to the farm to honour the start of a new season.
Here are some of our favourite memories from the day...
In the Heritage Orchard Tipi
Showing support for the UK wool industry
Ahead of our Homegrown Merino Collection launching later this year, we were delighted to be joined by British wool experts Leslie Prior and Ruth Rands to learn about the environmental and social benefits of British-grown wool. The panel was expertly led by journalist and sustainability advocate Ginnie Chadwych-Healey.

We also experienced a collectively energising meditative dance workshop with Ruu Campbell, plus an introduction to working with crystals for healing, with crystal healer Emma Knowles to close the action-filled day.
Fun for all the family
Arts, crafts, games and... sheep!
There was non-stop fun in our Kids Tent, and the adults didn't shy away from joining in the activities. Thank you to Jo Fellows, Sharky & George, Pop Up and Play and Anna the Hoolagan for keeping us all active, energised and entertained.
Name the merino sheep
Our loveable Daylesford merino sheep joined us in the Bamford Heritage Orchard and brought plenty of smiles to our guests' faces. Thank you to everyone who entered our Name The Sheep competition - the winning names were...
Sherino the Merino
Bamford Wellness Spa
Our spa provided a peaceful retreat from the action for mini treatments and facials, welcomed by our very own moss yogi outside the front entrance.
What better way to experience our geranium collection than in its very own greenhouse? Here, our guests could immerse themselves in the natural scent of the pelargoniums and sample our most-loved scented collection for body and skin.
In our Bamford Barn, Thread The Word Embroidery offered complimentary personalisation on all Bamford pieces purchased throughout the day. We loved seeing what symbols and initials you chose to add to your pieces.
Food and refreshments
We welcomed a variety of wholesome food and beverage vendors to the Heritage Orchard. Thank you to Gimber, Della Vite prosecco, Roll Baby and Nourish Sweet Treats for spending the day with us!
Heartfelt thanks from all of us at Bamford, Daylesford and Leoube for celebrating Harvest with us.
