Farm visit

We were visited by 80 members of the Church of Latter Day Saints, otherwise known as Mormons. They were in the UK from the US and were following in the footsteps of the LDS missionary Wilford Woodruff who was born 200 years ago in 1807. We set up a display of historic information about the farm and the Mormon Connection and it was a great day. One of the photos also shows some old hop sacks. We used to fill them with around 75 kg of dried hops, and they were then sown up by hand, numbered with an old metal stencil and then sent to the brewers to make beer.
