All the produce is donated by local growers and auctioned off by local man Colin Jelfs. In past years thousands of pounds have been raised for the Bretforton Silver band instruments and in 2010 Coutryfile's Adam Henson attended the auction with his camera crew and raised the bids to record amounts.
