    admin on 19 Oct 2012 at 03:21 PM

    On Sunday 7 October RHS Garden Rosemoor held another popular Apple Day. One of the stars of the show had to be Hallwood Farm Fresh Veg and their lovely pigs.

    Throughout the day on Sunday there were two orchard pigs in the Fruit Garden Field to entertain and educate visitors, kindly bought by Richard and Ruth Kelsey of Hallwood Fresh Veg. When these pigs arrived in the morning they were nameless so numerous families entered a competition to name them, the prize was a case of Rosemoor Apple Juice. Judged by Rosemoor’s Events Team and Peter Earl, Horticultural Team Leader of the Fruit and Veg Garden Team the winning names are … drum roll please … Rooter and Hooter by the Wilkins Family of Taunton, Somerset
