Glamorgan farmers fill the air with glorious smells for Farmhouse breakfast week
A warm welcome and mouth-watering smells greeted those who joined the Glamorgan breakfast functions, which have been organised as part of the FUW’s Farmhouse breakfast week campaign (January 21 – January 27).
The Glamorgan events were held on Monday, 21 January at Cwm Farm Shop, Treorchy and Friday, 25 January at Town Hall, Cowbridge along with a joint event with FUW Gwent on Thursday, 24 January at The Beech Tree Hotel, Ystrad Mynach, Hengoed.
“It was about showcasing the most important meal of the day in a bid to raise awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of breakfast and the huge variety of top quality farm produce available in Wales – ranging from bacon, sausages and eggs to speciality dairy products, breads and cereals. We were able to promote local producers with the assistance of AGORA which is a new project providing support to new and small producers in this area.”
We loved having everyone there and I thank all those who supported us this year either by cooking, sponsoring produce or helping us raise money for our worthy charities ,” said FUW Glamorgan CEO Rachel Saunders.
The breakfasts raised a fantastic amount of money for the FUW President’s charity appeal - a total of £600 - with all the proceeds being split between Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and Farming Community Network.
“It was great to have members and friends of the Union coming together, being a part of what we do, and sharing their thoughts and worries about the state of the industry, telling us their stories and helping us to understand how we can help each other. What better way to do that than round a table where we share great food and have a cup of tea. I’m already looking forward to next year’s breakfast events,” added Rachel Saunders.
