Made in the Midlands Food Village & Cookery demosFollowing on from the huge success of the local food producers food pavilion at Athlone Agri Show last year, this year’s committee are delighted to announce the expansion of the “Made in the Midlands Food Village” on Sunday June 26th in Moydrum. Additional producers are lined up and invited to attend and an even greater selection of high-quality ready-to-eat and take home produce will be on display. Last year’s “Made in the Midlands Food Village” accommodated local producers such as Rogans Smoke House, Bridgefield Farm Ice cream, Grogans of Glasson, The Mott and Bailey, Bluebell Farm Goats Cheese, The Fatted Calf from Glasson, Mossfield Farm from Birr, Meadowsweet Apiaries from Ballinahown, Derryvilla Blueberry Farm from Portarlington, Greenergy Foods from Mount Temple, A Slice of Life Restaurant from Athlone, and Coles Bakery and many more.
Last year’s show marked the fifth year of the establishment of the Food Village. There had been much demand from visitors and local producers alike to include a local food producers element to the extremely popular annual show. The Food Village houses stalls displaying produce from all over the Midlands as well as produce from local eateries.
Food production is a growing area in Ireland and we are fast becoming recognized for our high-quality meat, dairy and artisan products. The Food Village allows local producers and suppliers to meet directly with their customer, relay the benefits of their products and hopefully encourage shoppers to support Irish business.
It is envisaged that The Made in the Midlands Food Village will offer a platform for local producers to display their produce and speak directly to their customers about production methods, health benefits etc.
