On Bank Holiday Easter Monday 22nd April, Pick’s Organic Farm is holding a Spring Fayre and Family Funday to celebrate 20 years of organic goodness!

Bringing Archæolgy to Life
You may not know but the area of Leicester known as Hamilton is based upon the deserted village of Old-Hamilton which was deserted during the black-death in the 17th Century.  There will be archæological walks from former County Archæologist Peter Liddle MBE exploring the deserted village of Hamilton.

About the farm
The Pick family have been farming the land around Barkby Thorpe, Leicestershire for hundreds of years – at least back to the early 1600s.  In the late 19th century the family became involved in the market garden movement and began selling their produce direct to the public at local markets.  Tim Pick grew up with his mother and father in the farmhouse that the farm is still based in.  His cousin Nicky lived nearby and the two grew up together around the farm. With a belief in Organic Farming, Pick's Organic Farm was setup in 1999 by Nicky and Tim.  Since the early days the farm and its activities have grown and developed into a national concern with organic produce from humble Barkby-Thorpe now sold across the country.  The fayre and fun-day is to celebrate this, and give back to the community from where it comes.
