Here at Abbeydale, we love getting involved with our local community whenever we can. And we’re very lucky to have Heeley City Farm right on our doorstep.
Heeley City Farm is a well established not for profit charity and visitor attraction, providing beautiful green spaces and education, employment and training opportunities. Staff and volunteers work with young people, adults with learning disabilities and with local communities across Sheffield to promote regeneration, environmental education, energy efficiency and health and well-being. As well as this, they grow a whole range of fruit and vegetables in their allotments. Generally, they’re good eggs all round.
We have been lucky enough to have benefitted from the produce grown at Heeley City Farm in our most recent release of Reaper wheat beer, which includes a great big bunch of locally sourced rosemary!
A cask of Reaper will be available this weekend, at Heeley City Farm’s first beer festival. Head on down to join in the merriment on Friday 11th May 5.30-9pm, and Saturday 12th May 2pm-9pm (or until the beer runs out!). More details are available here.
We are hoping to continue our involvement with this wonderful project in the future, so look out for more beers containing loads of lovely locally grown ingredients every season.
