Christmas Fayre 2023
Once again we are holding "Turkey Day" on Saturday the 23rd December. As ever we shall be selling the delicious turkeys from the Walters family in Aldworth, sadly Peach Croft has ceased trading and we are finding it incredibly hard to find a high quality replacement so we will not be offering gease this year. Our pork products this year will be supplied by Red Lion farm in Btritwell using their own farm reared pork making them the nearsest pork supplier we could use!
If you are new to us, firstly Hello and welcome! We have been holding "Turkey day for 17 years now, the format is pretty simple, you choose what you would like, pay and then come to White Pond Farm (RG9 6HG) on the 23rd December between 10am and 4pm to collect your order, have a glass of mulled wine and look around at the hand picked stalls attending (listed below) (all with hardly any queues!).
Sadly you will notice the lack of our White Pond Farm beef on this years order form, it may be back for next year so dont completely give up on us, also this year our "Turkey Trimmings" section is changing slightly so please be patient while we get the details finalised, should be any day now!
We are continuing with our online shop as it seemed to work well last year, if you have any difficulties then please give us a call (01491 638224) or an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will help you out

His 'legendary' mulled wine will also be available to purchase by the bottle which you can enjoy during the Christmas festivities at home.
Oaken Grove is a local boutique vineyard established in 1986 when we planted our first vine on the grounds of a Victorian apple and pear orchard. We now have seven acres of Pinot Noir, Bacchus and Madeleine Angevine vines. In 2020 we were proud to produce our first ever English still red wine from the Pinor Noir. With a beautiful setting nestled in the Chiltern Hills, we run tours and tastings, ‘jazz in the vines’ music events and food pop ups. The outdoor space coupled with the indoor tasting room makes the vineyard an idyllic and different setting for corporate events, meetings, private parties, celebrations and a small number of weddings.
