Food Fair April 20

February 25, 2016 12:36 PM

A new food fair celebrating local food is set to bring producers, retailers and customers together to showcase products made in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Cheeses, artisan bread, fish, meats, biscuits, cakes, and a refreshing cider or a mellow glass of wine - it sounds like the perfect ingredients for a summer picnic on the stunning Cranborne Chase. But did you know that all of these delicious local products are actually made in the Cranborne Chase area?

To raise awareness of the range of quality local food and drink produced locally, the AONB, in partnership with the South West Wiltshire Area Board, are hosting a Food Fair at the Larmer Tree Gardens near Tollard Royal on Wednesday 20th April to bring producers and retailers and consumers together.

During the morning local businesses who use or supply foods, including pubs, restaurants, B&Bs, hotels, farm shops, village stores and supermarkets will be invited to meet the producers and sample and learn more about locally produced food with a view to including it on their menus, or stocking it in their stores.

From 1pm the Food Fair will be open to the general public, no need to bring a picnic, there will be lots of food on offer and the stunning Larmer Tree Gardens will be open to explore, so people can enjoy a wonderful afternoon out discovering the taste of the Chase.

To find out more about the event, or to register your interest in attending or taking a stand (free to producers in the Cranborne Chase AONB area), please get in touch with Rachel Limb who is organising the event on behalf of the AONB. Rachel can be reached on 07976 222260, or email

Mere Fish Farm and Donhead Apple Company are two of the local producers who have already signed up to display on the day.
