Wirral Farm Feast 2014

On Sunday we visited Claremont Farm near Bebington in mid-Wirral for the ‘Farm Feast 2014’, the new name for the Wirral Food and Drink Festival. The festival is held on a working farm and as it had rained hard over the preceding days the fields were a little muddy.  The rain stayed away until late afternoon but you still needed wellies to get around.

There were hundreds of stalls selling all kinds of locally produced and artisan made foods from across the North West.

There were also demonstrations by celebrity chefs.  I caught Brendan Lynch a baker and finalist in last year’s BBC TV ‘Great British Bake Off’.  He’d finished his demonstration and was judging a cake making competition.

This year there were three sound stages featuring a number of artists from around the region.  Whilst I was there Liverpool band City Walls performed on the on the main stage.

Liverpool folk artist Mikey Kenney was on the Courtyard stage as we sampled the delights of the food and drink stalls in the light drizzle.
