We had a fantastic weekend here in Dungarvan for the Waterford Festival of Food.  Due to the great line up and even better weather the crowds were bigger than ever this year.

Our in-store tastings went very well indeed.  Beal Cheese was particularly popular due to their exposure on Dragons’ Den a few weeks ago.  A very special thank you to Cathy Whitty from Cathy’s Spelt for Health.  Cathy and her husband drove down from Wicklow to be with us on Saturday  and her spelt bread and flapjack mixes went down an absolute storm.  We’ve never before had such a popular in store event.

Jess Keane and Eunice Power’s session on superfoods at the Town Hall on Saturday afternoon was very popular.  We had very good feedback from people who attended, and sold out of Quinori within 15 minutes of their talk ending!  Paul Flynn & Neven McGuire’s sessions also seemed to be highlights of the festival.

On Sunday we were with the Dungarvan GIY Group at the giant Farmers market on the Square.  The kids bean planting event was a great success and we signed up lots of new potential GIY members.  We got a great buzz from showing loads of Pre-School and National School teachers how to make newspaper  plant pots and germinate seeds with their classes.  So, who knows, we may even have started a new generation of GIYers.
