Festival of Food & Farming 2013 – Photos

Last updated on June 26, 2016

The Festival on 5th & 6th October, which was organised jointly by Haslington WI, the Food for Thought Bakery and St Mattew’s Church, was a great success. In particular the farmers market on Saturday was a popular attraction with farm animals for the children and a good range of local produce for the mums and dads. “The Great Food Debate” held in St Matthews on Saturday evening prompted a lively and interesting discussion and was served with good helpings of fine English cheeses and wine.

We hope this will grow into a regular event.
