A feast at the food fair

If you have ever fancied tasting Squirrel, then make your way along to the National Botanic Garden of Wales at the end of the month, January 28-29. The Food Fair is to be the final event in the Free January programme that the Garden is currently running and is all set to be a great event.

The food company ‘Taste of the Valleys’ are making their debut at the garden, and bringing with them their extensive range of local food products. There won’t only be Squirrel on the menu either, there will be partridge, pigeon, pheasant, venison, rabbit and wild duck, alongside their speciality sausages and cured bacons and gammons.

Ruth Askwith, of Taste of the Valleys, said: “We have just moved into the Carmarthen area and we are very keen to take part in local food events. Squirrel is one of our best sellers at the moment.”

For the more conservative palate, there will also be locally brewed beer and cider; Welsh-produced wine; longhorn beef, mutton and lamb; pork; Welsh Black beef; vegetarian treats; fabulous Carmarthenshire cheese; Welsh brew tea, chutneys, pickles, preserves; bread, cakes, sweets, honey, biscuits, brownies and chocolates.

In short, it’s an absolute feast!

The Garden is open from 10am until 4.30pm, admission to the Garden and the Food Fair is free.
