You'll also have the chance to meet our producers. Visit Blackwoods Cheese Company, who make wonderful award winning cheeses; sample delicious fermented dairy products with Happy Belly Foods, and visit Metske van der Laan to talk about organic veg growing.

The Farm Gate will be selling Bore Place produce and, as well as providing food for our local community to buy, it will also provide valuable work experience as it will be run by young people attending projects at Bore Place, with all money made being fed back into our education programmes.

FREE to attend (donations welcome on the gate) but please book free tickets to help us anticipate numbers.
