Feast on The Farm will be held in the atmospheric greenhouses at Peterley Manor Farm, Great Missenden. The Brill family have been long time champions of seasonality and this two-day festival will be a celebration of the amazing array of produce that The Chilterns has to offer.
You can expect appearances from local chefs and restaurants who collectively are making The Chilterns a food destination. These include Laurie Gear from the Artichoke, Old Amersham, Jon Parry from The Mash Inn, Radnage, (voted one of the top twenty places in the UK for Foodies by The Times).
For all you budding food and drink entrepreneurs you will be able to gain valuable insight to launching and running your own business from Ben Branson, Founder of the world’s first non-alcoholic sprit Seedlip, Nick Coleman, Founder of Snaffling Pig, investment winner on Dragon’s Den and Will Lacey, now at the reins of Lacey’s Farm, taking a family business and innovating the business model.
Entry to the festival gets you free access to a varied programme of workshops from butchery, to fermentation with author Charlotte Pike, coffee brewing with Extract Coffee, the art of tempering chocolate, and there will be especially curated children’s workshops hosted by the award winning Beverley Glock Cookery School, who will also be host extraordinaire on the stage.
There really will be an opportunity to get up close and personal with the producers at the Lea and Sandeman Wine Bar where they will be hosting tastings, producer pairings and mini talks from the likes of Campfire Gin, Native Beef, Chiltern Charcuterie and many more.
Of course what is a food festival without food? Feasting on the Green will satisfy your hunger with a Middle Eastern fare from Laffa, a gourmet local “Toastie” from Native Toastie, Chiltern Ice Cream and The Wild Strawberry Café and why not wash it down with a real ale from Malt the Brewery who shall be hosting the outside bar.
The festival will be open from 10am –5pm and tickets are on sale now.
