Food lovers from all over Ireland are in for a treat this autumn, as the Burren Food Fayre is returning for a series of unique food and farm visitor experiences this October bank holiday weekend.
This year marks the popular Food Fayre’s 10th anniversary after last year’s event pivoted to be held virtually on social media. This October bank holiday event will see a return to in-person experiences with a different and exciting format.
The Burren Food Fayre will take place between October 22nd and October 25th and coincides with the Burren Winterage Festival organised by Burrenbeo which celebrates the ancient custom of out-wintering cattle on the upland areas of the Burren.
Small groups of visitors will be able to prebook different itineraries, which will take them on a food trail across the length and breadth of the Burren. These will include visits to food producers such as Burren Gold, St Tola Goat Cheese, Burren Smokehouse, Flaggy Shore Oysters and many others to learn about their fascinating food stories.
There will also be an opportunity to take part in a diverse range of farm tours, which will highlight the distinctive farming practices of the Burren region.
Recently the Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark joined the UNESCO ‘Geofood’ brand which promotes sustainable agriculture and conservation and supports farmers and communities in the area.
