Making beautiful books
and big statements
The first in the Finding Your Way series has just been printed. Meet the Sad Skeleton, struggling to understand his feelings as he journeys through ‘Lifeland’, a magical place where the six ‘big’ feelings of sadness, fear, happiness, anger, disgust and surprise are waiting to be explored. Skelly is helped along the way by his good friend Dave the bat. Dave helps Skelly to find his way and so the magical adventure begins.
Modern family life can be complex and it could be argued that children today have to deal with more emotional pressures than ever before. The Finding Your Way series of books has been written by Kay Brophy – a counsellor and psychologist who specialises in working with children and families – to help educate children about safe ways to express their feelings using fun characters and stories.
We’re thrilled with our very first review in a US magazine! Thank you Middlebury Magazine for recognising a good story when you see one! Maquis by Bing Taylor.
We’re so excited to announce our latest project with the brilliant Katie’s Kids Kitchen. The MFP team were on location today shooting some brilliant new recipe cards for children with the lovely Katie W and Denise V and trusted photographer Richard Hammerton. The cards will be landing in about a month, along with some truly trendy ‘My Kitchen’ folders to keep them all in. We love working with you guys, what a fun day…
Middle Farm Press Director and author of Doing it in Wellies, Sam Gray, on London Live TV today.
Well done Sam, you were great!
We know this is going to be a year of great things – we are about to reprint the fabulous MAQUIS by Bing Taylor and Ursula Evans’ book is well and truly under way. With several more in the pipeline, we can’t wait to get started – working with some fab people and bringing you more lovely books… Happy new year!
We are thrilled to announce that we are going to be producing a book with the fabulous Ursula Evans – the lady behind the best fruitcakes in the land. She has won numerous awards and fans include Chris Evans, Tom Parker Bowles and Mary Berry, who described her cake as ‘the best fruitcake I have ever tasted’. As well as offering delicious recipes based on the changing seasons, the book will finally reveal her much-sought-after top-secret award-winning fruitcake recipe and Middle Farm Press are honoured to be part of it all. And as if it couldn’t get any better, she feeds us cake every time we see her! Match. Made. Heaven.
We finally got around to having our official Middle Farm Press launch! With canapés provided by Momo•No•Ki, guests included: Jenny and Marcus Bean (Brompton Cookery School); Colin Young (BBC Radio Shropshire); John Barton (Coach and Horses); Chris Burt (Momo·No·Ki.), Sam and Claire Barker (Greak Berwick Organics) and Suree Coates (The King and Thai), who all turned up to support Bing Taylor, Sam Gray and Kate Taylor as they celebrated their new company and its first book, Doing it in Wellies, which was launched at last week’s Ludlow Food Festival.

The cover of our latest book was sent to us today. We LOVE it. An exciting spy novel is just what we need for the perfect winter evening! Out in October… watch this space.
Not only does our very own Sam Gray appear on the cover of this year’s Ludlow Food Festival programme, we’re sponsoring an activity sheet for kids and providing loads of fun in the Doing it in Wellies tent. Hopefully see you there!
