A vintage and classic car day returns to Derbyshire farm shop Croots this year and will be staged as part of the August bank holiday weekend.

Taking place on Saturday August 24th from 10am to 5pm, the event is free to enter and is expected to attract at least 24 cars and other vehicles.

Croots Farm Shop, which is based at Farnah House Farm, Wirksworth Road, near Duffield, held similar events in 2010 and 2011.

After a break last year, the event is set to return in 2013 – and will also feature a burger festival, cheese sampling and wine tasting.

β€œThe vintage and classic car day at Croots has proved popular in the past and when we were asked to host it again we thought it would be an ideal event to stage on the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend,” said Steve Croot, who runs the award-winning farm shop and Shires Eatery.

Other attractions on the day will be a burger festival featuring Croots home-made burgers, cheese sampling from the Cheese Cellar and wine tasting sessions run by the Little Wine Club.

The farm shop, which opened in 2008, sells a range of food and drink produced locally, regionally and from further afield.

It stocks products from up to 40 producers from within a 50-mile radius of the shop.

It also produces its own range of products, including sausages, pies and ready meals.

In May, Croots opened its expanded Shires Eatery, offering a range of refreshments, lunches and afternoon teas in a scenic setting overlooking the Ecclesbourne Valley.

Croots Farm Shop is open Sundays from 10am to 4pm (Shires Eatery until 3.45pm), and from Tuesday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm (Shires Eatery until 4.30pm).It is closed on Mondays.
