In celebration of Great British Beef Week, Nick and Claire Bragg of Frogmary Green Farm organised a beef supper for 120 guests. This is the third year running that Frogmary Green Farm have kindly donated their time and efforts to raise funds for R.A.B.I in honour of GBBW.
After dinner, they held an auction with exciting lots kindly donated to help raise funds for R.A.B.I. The lots up for grabs included a rib of beef donated by a local butcher, a hamper of Sheppy’s Cider, and a day’s shooting at Westermill Farm. Combined with two raffles, the auction raised £1,995.
Caroline Drummond, chief executive of Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF), was the guest speaker. LEAF is an organisation which promotes sustainable agriculture, food, and farming. Caroline talked about the importance of British agriculture, especially the beef sector. John Hoskin, a trustee for R.A.B.I, also spoke and thanked the Braggs, as well as toasting to HM The Queen on her birthday.
Chef Suzy Parry-Jones prepared a dinner using produce from local farmers. Diners enjoyed roast beef from J Wakely & Sons and Bonners of Ilminster, roast potatoes from Frogmary Green Farm, and vegetables from J Wakely & Sons and other local producers.
