Beef, bars, beds and bakeries – a new approach for an old favourite.
What could be better than food glorious food? How about amazing food, followed by an award winning drink, a long walk amongst rolling hills stopping by Wales largest Castle, followed by an evening in comfy bed before a big breakfast and a day on the downhill slopes?
That’s what we thought too. Under the all new Rural Development Programme, Cwm a Mynydd will be launching all new networks that aim to link up sectors that work closely together. For us that means that the Food and Drink Network’s and Hospitality Networks of old will be rejigged and launched into the Cwm a Mynydd Food, Drink and Hospitality Network a home for beef, bars, beds and bakeries and everything else in between.
The Network was launched at The Caerphilly Food Festival on the 7th May and undertook a consultation about local produce that will guide its work over the coming months. Over 100 people participated in the launch consultation, each participating for the chance to win a local produce hamper, with the lucky winner, Mary Garland claiming the prize.
The network will continue its work exploring opportunities for local producers and hospitality providers to work together through initiatives like Meet the Brewer and engage with regional events and support through our role in the South East Wales Regional Food Partnership.
The Cwm a Mynydd Food, Drink and Hospitality network is now open for new members to develop ideas and projects collaboratively. For more information, head to Cwm a Mynydd on Facebook and Twitter call the team on 01443 838632 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
