Wicklow Naturally’s “October Feast” is a full calendar of activities highlighting food and drink producers and all they have to offer.
For the month of October, Wicklow Naturally producers will be highlighting what they do through online videos direct from their farms, wineries, distilleries, cafes, gardens and kitchens. There will be foraging tours, recipes, cookery demonstrations, afternoon teas, “meet the makers” days and so much more. People can join on Wicklow Naturally’s social media channels – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – to enjoy everything which is on offer. Wicklow Naturally is the single promotional voice which tells the story of food and drink produced in County Wicklow. It is a brand created to celebrate the food and drink producers who work hard to deliver high quality products to consumers through the hospitality sector, retail, food and drink events as well as key tourism events. “October Feast” celebration would not be possible without the support from Wicklow County Council, County Wicklow Partnership, LEADER Programme, Wicklow Local Enterprise Office and Failte Ireland.”
Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council, Cllr Pat Kennedy, said: “Wicklow County Council is delighted to support the development of Wicklow Naturally which showcases all that is excellent about the food and drink on offer from the Garden of Ireland. Never before has it been more important to support local producers, retailers, restaurateurs, pubs and all those involved in the food and hospitality sector. We very much appreciate the support from our partners in this initiative. “
