Ballyhoura Food Fair

There was great excitement in Kilmallock on Monday as Mary Kennedy and the Nationwide team arrived to cover the Ballyhoura Food Fair. They were covering the Food Fair which has been running for 2 years and also the launch of ‘A Taste of Ballyhoura’. This is an all encompassing name covering high quality foods from the Ballyhoura area. A personal vision for ‘A Taste of Ballyhoura’ was given by Maurice Gilbert of Ballyhoura Apple Farm: “Collectively we would supply natural, wholesome products from a fresh and green environment, initially to a local customer base but aiming to supply nationally in the future. That we would be recognised fundamentally as people who care about what they produce and the environment in which it is grown; that we nurture and visibly encourage artisan and craft producers in the area.”
