It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
And everyone at Heaton House Farm is definitely in the Christmas spirit! The Christmas Shop is open, the yard is filled with Christmas trees and wreaths and the barns are decorated with stars and snowflakes!
We are all loving the season of joy and have enjoyed sharing the Christmas cheer with everyone who has visited the farm. We have had wonderful winter weddings, two incredible Fire & Ice Christmas parties and been visited by so many lovely customers.
To thank everyone for their hard work and dedication throughout the year and especially over the Christmas period, the Heaths thought it would be the perfect time to get everyone together.
We were all invited to The Old Stableyard for an afternoon of festivities and instructed to be wearing our best Christmas jumpers!
And the Heaton House Farm team did not disappoint! Santa Hats, Reindeer Antlers and lots of Jingle Bells… everyone arrived looking absolutely brilliant and very festive!
Sarah provided us all with a festive tipple to enjoy as everyone made their way to the restaurant, and we had a lovely time chatting and trying to decide who was wearing the best Christmas jumper!
We were all ready for a delicious lunch and that is exactly what we got! Stable Yard Catering served a Potato, Smoked Cheddleton Cheese and Chive soup with Home Baked Bread for starter, an indulgent Pulled Beef Brisket Sharing Pie topped with Crushed Potatoes and Seasonal Vegetables for the main course, and a delectable Chocolate Ganache with Kirsch-Soaked Cherries, Chantilly Cream and Edible Flowers for dessert.
Christmas really is the time for indulging! And everyone was absolutely stuffed after three delicious courses.
Enjoying another round of drinks after dinner, we turned our attention to the presents that had been left at our seats… It was time to look through our Secret Santa gifts!
The whole team loved taking part in the Secret Santa as we all tried to figure out what present our person would love to receive. And of course, trying to guess who had who!
The presents were all perfect, some were heartfelt and some were absolutely hilarious ensuring everyone was in hysterics!
It was the most perfect afternoon… amazing food, festive drinks and wonderful company. We all really enjoyed spending quality time together to reminisce about our achievements as a team over the year and look forward to the new developments in the New Year!
Taking time away from work to enjoy each other’s company is what makes our award-winning team so incredible!
