Montgomeryshire farmhouse breakfasts raise profile of quality Welsh food
Farmers from Montgomeryshire were once again heating up the frying pans and firmly put the spotlight on the top quality Welsh food available throughout Wales.
The two breakfast, held on Monday, 21 January at Bwyty Maengwyn, Machynlleth and Friday, 25 January at Plas Du, Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant, were part of the FUW’s Farmhouse breakfast week, which promotes the quality premium local produce that farmers grow for us every day of the year.
“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 and even Shiitake Mushrooms. We were able to promote local producers with the assistance of Gwenan Ellis from AGORA, a 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 Montgomeryshire CEO Emyr Wyn Davies.
The breakfasts raised a fantastic amount of money for the FUW President’s charity appeal, a total of £380, with more donations still coming in. All the proceeds from both breakfasts will be 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 Emyr Wyn Davies.
