Most recently, Wade Potteries, Staffordshire, produced a limited edition run of 500 two-handled cider mugs with the 'Farmers Arms' verse on them for the Taunton Cider Company in 1981.
In addition to mugs, oversized cups and saucers, soup bowls, plates and punch bowl sets there are jugs, often around 17 - 18 cm (7") high. (Pre 153 when taken over by Cobridge Pottery) AW Gale.
For many generations Cider formed part of the way of life among farming communities over a wide area of the West Country.
Cider was made on individual farms and was stored in large wooden casks each holding up to 100 gallons or more.
It just released its first ever national ad campaign with a funny video to change people’s minds about using the word ‘gay’ to describe something bad.
The ad star two farmers and one of them accidentally drops his meat pie on the ground.
Meats, cheeses, breads, vegetables, art work, jams & preserves, baked goods, fresh herbs, oils, teas and homemade drinks are just some of the things you’ll find at this lovely local’s farmers’ market. Some of the bigger and more accommodating locations nearby include Castle Car Park (GUI 3RW) on Town Path near to the Holy Trinity Church of England and Leapale Road Car Park (GU1 4JX) near the corner of College Road and Leapale Lane.One 'Farmers Arms' jug produced is most unusual because it is very much brighter and more expensive in style than the others that were made - with a solid, bright sky, blue background and gold leaf edging - much more sophisticated glazing than is usual. Most Farmers Arms pottery and china is simple in design and muted in colour (usually with the black transfer print being the only decoration, or muted colours surrounded by a black transfer design border), in keeping with the sentiment of the verses printed on them. Apparently dating from the late 1700's up until the middle of the last century, quite a lot of china and pottery was produced in England with variations of the Farmers Arms poem. The Adams family produced pottery in Staffordshire back to the 17th century although they are no longer in existence some of the designs are still manufactured by Wedgwood. First, it's the Flavor of the Market challenge - the teams must create a dish that highlights a vendor's star ingredient.
