Join us this 30 September & 1 October for the Country Brocante ‘Autumn Fair’ at Daylesford Organic Farm. We are thrilled to celebrate the turning of the seasons and welcome the golden days of Autumn with our first ever exclusive Country Brocante event at Daylesford.
Set over two days in the wonderful Cotswold countryside, we invite you to turn your thoughts to the notion of gathering and preparing, stocking up and sorting, a time of abundance and making ready. The Country Brocante is rooted in the beauty and comfort of home and we will be looking to the rituals and traditions of creative living to inspire and sustain us as the nights draw in.
Daylesford has long been at the forefront of organic and ethical farming, a pioneering force in the move to a more sustainable and mindful way of living. The Country Brocante embodies an ethos which shares Daylesford’s deeply held ethical values and desire to live in closer connection to the earth and the environment around us.
Daylesford was founded on the desire to return to a more respectful way of farming which supports the countryside and helps the land and the people connected to it to flourish. Daylesford has been farming for 40 years, holding themselves accountable to the highest ethical and environmental standards, working to inform and inspire and create greater awareness of how the way we live impacts the environment.
The Country Brocante, in essence, also offers a glimpse of a different way of living. A mindful way of living that respects the old ways, treasures the times worn, seeks to mend, re use and re purpose. We promote shopping locally and consciously, we respect the benefits of living in close harmony with the seasons, we champion the small scale. We value our makers and artisans who through their traditional skills and use of natural and sustainable materials embody living lightly and ethically. We are proud to bring The Country Brocante to Daylesford for this our eighth year and believe that it is a collaboration which will inspire a new way of thinking about mindful living.
We hope you will join us this Autumn for a celebration of sustainable living. As always our traditional Marquees will be filled with beautiful decorative antiques and vintage treasures, stunning antique fabrics, quilts and hand-dyed linen, English, French and Scandinavian antique furniture and interiors. We have an exquisite curation of independent home and lifestyle brands, skilled artisans and makers and an abundance of plants, flowers and ideas for garden living.
This year we are delighted to extend the Country Brocante Fair into the stunning Home & Garden Rooms within the main Daylesford Farm shop. We will be offering an inspiring program of talks, workshops and demonstrations from an array of talented creatives and designers including Susie Watson, Maker and Son, Lucy The Flower Hunter and Christina Strutt, Paula of Hill House Vintage and Caroline Zoob.
We are also delighted to be featuring, for the first time, talks and demonstrations from Daylesford Farm’s own experts in sustainability and natural living.
We invite you to join us for an exclusive Country Brocante Autumn fair at Daylesford. Two delightful days of the Country Brocante’s quintessential country garden atmosphere, browsing the beautiful stalls, shopping sustainably, eating seasonally, a program of events to inspire and inform and all the wonderful organic and ethical delights that Daylesford has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you.
