Cake, food, children, families and ... a petting zoo. It was an impressive first birthday party for PepperGreen Farm on Saturday.
The social enterprise opened in 2018 to create a safe environment for supported employees.
Team leader employment Michelle Taylor said the farm showcased the work of volunteers.
"We're really proud of what we've achieved. This place was not open to the public," she said.
"We're growing into a real community hub, and we're really proud of it, so we chose to celebrate."
And of course.
"It's a really good excuse to have a party," she joked.
As well as the petting zoo, food and market stalls visitors could join in a Name the Gnome competition.
The farm inherited 10 gnomes a while back from a woman who's husband had passed away, and confessed she secretly hated them.
They've been at PepperGreen for some time, but sitting nameless in their cluster.
Ms Taylor said market-goes could submit name suggestions for the group.
