Before each of Neven Maguire’s cookery demonstrations for Bord Bia some local artisan food producers will take a few minutes to introduce their products to the audience. They will be:
Mossfield Organic Farm from Birr will tell people about their award-winning cheese, milk, yoghurt and buttermilk, the expanding market they supply and their international reputation.
Lough Boora Farm which is certified by the Organic Trust Ltd. will showcase their range of organic vegetables which they have been growing and supplying to private customers as well as businesses for over 30 years.
Pat Clarke’s Fruit, a well-established business from Co. Meath is well known at the show. His stem picked strawberries in particular are always much sought after.
Fergus Dunne from Pigs on the Green in Killeigh will explain to the audience the reason for his organic pork and bacon cuts having great taste and flavour.
Wild Irish Foragers from Shinrone will remind people of the somewhat forgotten tradition of foraging. They will recall many ways in which those wild foods can be used or cooked for either immediate use or for longer term storage.
Some of the above will also be selling their produce at the show and details of their location will be available on the day.
