Meet The Member – Denise Taylor – Hope Spring

Date/Time Location Course facilitator
9 Jun 2021 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM Hope Spring Denise Taylor

Meet The Member – Evening Event 

There is probably nothing that Denise Taylor cannot do. Passionate about self sufficiency, Denise is a newcomer to the world of smallholding, having realised her dream in September 2020, thanks to a legacy left to her by her late father. Her smallholding is named in his honour in fact.

Denise thrives on growing her own fruit and veg, and is loving raising her own animals for happy, free range meat. She is also the queen of preserves, whether that is dehydrating, making jams or chutney, or a delicious jerky. She is also no stranger to dispatching her own meat birds, or processing game birds, as well as taking on the mammoth task of butchering a whole pig!

If there is ever an apocalypse, you need to have Denise as a friend, she will make sure you don’t go hungry.

Denise is also one of “Member Tutors” for 2021, she will be sharing her knowledge on dehydrating foods and herbs for storage on 26th September, booking now.

*Please note that this event will be held in mainly outside, so please dress appropriately on the day. Standard tea and coffee will be served, if you have any special milk requirements, dietary needs please bring your own and we will happily serve it for you. You are welcome to bring your own snacks too. (there are no food options available on site). You are coming to a very rural smallholding with basic / no facilities.


Don’t forget – you’ll need to log in before buying tickets. If you’re not yet a member, just drop an email to the SFTG GTO and we’ll organise your tickets for you.
