The festival incorporates a wide range of events from farm and vineyard tours to pop-up restaurants, tastings and chef demos.

Tracy Nash, commercial manager, said: ‘The month-long festival is an opportunity to show people what is grown and made in the county. From walking with buffalo to distillery tours or watching demos from top local chefs the festival offers something for all tastes. We’d love to hear from local food and farming businesses keen to run an event.’
