At FarmED we are all about soil health to gut health and everything in between, so we celebrated midsummer with a farm walk and talk, a three-course dinner using all local, seasonal, British ingredients – most of which came from our own kitchen garden - and music.
Special guest Clare Hargreaves, a food critic and writer for everything from Olive to The Independent, and BBC Good Food, spends her time travelling the country talking to artisan producers and figuring out what’s the next big thing in the world of food. This year Clare has taken on a personal challenge – to consume only British food and drink for a whole year - and she came to FarmED to share her story so far, highlighting the reasons why eating locally and seasonally are so important for our health and the planet.
On the menu was:
Hemp roasted beetroot, honeyed walnut, Cotswold goat cheese, stoneground rye and coriander bread, lemon thyme butter
Seaweed crusted lamb or salt baked kohlrabi, broad beans and peas, wild garlic, ground ivy tzatziki, pilau
Elderflower and lemon verbena posset, spelt shortbread, rose geranium strawberries
After dinner, guests enjoyed live music from D’Accord.
We’ve got lots more events lined up over the summer, so check out our events programme on our website.
