THE "OPEN DAY PARTY" AT THE REALLY WILD FARM SHOP
These are pictures from yesterday's Really Wild Farm Shop "opening day party" in Wolfscastle at the Nant y Coy Arts Centre, "the Watermill with Art and Soul" that adds unique "Food" to its description thanks to the smart efforts of Brian Powdrill and Julia Horton-Powdrill.
The Wild Farm Shop was born with Adam Vincent of Trehale Farm, Mathry, who's vision was to open an outlet for the high quality produce of the rare breeds meat and charcuterie, from his family farm.
Today it's a magnificent reality.
Yes, this is a lovely and magical place, even on a rainy and windy day (nothing special here in Wales!)
The Really Wild Farm Shop is a spin-off of the five-year old Really Wild Food & countryside Festival that got the attention of the Online Micheline Guide.
The shop, which is managed by Katie Kerpner and assistant manager, Adrian Clifton, is open six days a week from 9am to 7pm and on Sundays from 10am to 5pm.
Deborah brought her Cheese + Pickles Studio workshop to the event with craft activities for children.
As you can see, we had an eight-hour roasted pig, warm Gethins Welsh Cider, fabulous premium quality coffee roasted near Solva by Rafael Hernandez-Ariaza, local cheeses, great fresh fish from the onshore tanks of Claws Shellfish in Mildford Haven... and the company of ducks, gees, wild board cross Berkshire pigs and "Ozzy", a fantastic Manx Loghtan ram.
Thank you to all of you!
