8 ways to make the most of your trip to Somerset with YeoValley

Spring and summertime workshops & events with our friends

There’s no place quite like Somerset in the spring and summer time, with miles of rolling hills, roaming wildlife, picture-perfect chocolate box villages and countless festivals. Our friends at Yeo Valley, just 10.6 miles down the road from THE PIG-near Bath, have a whole host of happenings throughout the warmer months for you to get stuck into.

 

So, who are Yeo Valley?

Yeo Valley is an organic family farm down in Blagdon near Bristol, that's grown into Britain's largest organic brand. True to their roots and provenance of their dairy products, they work with farms across the Mendips and Somerset supporting local as much as possible. At the heart of their yoghurts and milk is their incredible British Friesian cows who happily graze outside on their organic lush pastures.
