The event is being held on Sunday, June 9th where all competitors will be asked to bring their cakes in for 12pm, before the judging commences at 2pm.  There will be goodie bags, prizes and rosettes and a Best In Show trophy.

To enter all you have to do is:

  1. Make or/and decorate two cupcakes


  1. Make or/and decorate a Victoria sponge.

If your child would like to enter please email [email protected] before May 15th.

The event will end our first ever Food Fair, sponsored by Leisure Resorts, which is being held in a marquee in the grounds. The event starts on Thursday, June 6 with a fun masterclass with former Great British Bake Off contestants Howard Middleton and Sandy Docherty; then during the daytime there will be lots of food tastings, a barbecue, masterclasses, a pie tasting and a sausage making demonstration. On the Saturday evening there will be a performance by the award winning Leyland Brass Band.

Anyone want to be a pie taster for the afternoon?

If you are interested in being considered for our pie tasting panel – where you will try half a dozen pies including new, unusual flavours and give feedback – please email [email protected]

The tasting panel will be at 2pm on Friday, June 7th, although you need to register your interest before May 6th.

The pie tasting will be led by James Wilson, a veteran pie taster who also organises the World Meat Pie championships. “I was a judge at a pie competition at Country Harvest last year and I can still remember the fantastic pastry and wonderful fillings, so when they approached me about doing a masterclass on one of my favourite things – pies, I couldn’t say no!” said James, who was born and bred in the Dales.

This year the pie tasting event will be part of Country Harvest’s four-day Food Fair (June 7th-9th) featuring the best producers from across Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria. The event, sponsored by Leisure Resorts, includes an evening masterclass by former Great British Bake Off contestants Howard Middleton and Sandy Docherty and a performance by 27 members of award winning Leyland Brass Band on the Saturday night, June 8th.

A four day Food Fair featuring the best producers from across  Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire is being planned at Country Harvest this summer.

The event includes two ticketed events:  former Great British Bake Off (GBBO) contestants Howard Middleton and Sandy Docherty will be giving a baking masterclass on the Thursday night and on the Saturday evening there will be a performance by 27 members of the  award winning Leyland Brass Band.

“It’s the first time we have held a Food Fair at Country Harvest and we hope to combine all the great things we do here under one marquee, together with loads of food stalls and mini masterclasses throughout the day. It’s still at the planning stages but we have some wonderful food suppliers signed up. All the daytime events will be free, with the  two evening ticketed ones  already selling well,” said Mike Clark, owner of Country Harvest.

The Food Fair, sponsored by Leisure Resorts, is being held from June 7th-9th with the baking masterclass with GBBO favourites Howard and Sandy kick starting the fun on the evening of Thursday, June 6th.

During the Food Fair there will be a sausage making demonstration; pie tasting masterclass; coffee tasting; lessons in how to make gin cocktails, cheese tastings and lots more.  Entry and all daytime masterclasses are free.

On the Sunday afternoon there will also be  a Junior Bake Off competition. “Last year we held a Bake Off competition for 25 bakers to make cakes to mark our 25th anniversary. It was the best event we have ever held, thanks to the enormous skill of the bakers involved and so we thought it would be great fun to have another cake competition, but for juniors,” said Mike.

If you are interested in taking part in the Junior Bake Off competition (Under 11s only) on the afternoon of Sunday, June 9th email [email protected]
