We had a little harvest of sweet and juicy blackberries from our own crop at London Heritage Farm and they are just ripe in time for the Berry Tea this weekend August 2nd and 3rd at the Tea Room from noon to 5 pm.  Come out and enjoy a full tea served with home-made scone and berry jam plus other goodies and maybe some freshly picked blackberries (while stock last) on cream. Call for reservation is recommended.
