Welsh food and drink producers to celebrate rural life this weekend

A host of new food and drink producers are gearing up to meet the public at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society’s Smallholding and Countryside Festival at Llanelwedd this weekend (May 18 & 19).

Formerly known as the Spring Festival, the event draws thousands of visitors from Wales and beyond – eager to see the array of rural attractions, and sample some Welsh food and drink!

The Food Hall is always among the main features, and nine producers will be exhibiting there under the auspices of Cywain – a Menter a Busnes delivered project that supports the development of growth orientated businesses in the food and drink sector in Wales.


From smoked meats, honey and sweet treats, to vegan pâtés, sea salt, syrups and mocktails, there will be something new to try and buy at the Cywain stand.

Saturday May 18th

  • The Nourish Deli
  • The Queen Bee Honey Company
  • Halen Dewi
  • Brooksgrove Farm

Sunday May 19th

  • Deli de Bruin
  • The Fudge Foundry
  • Sober Drinks
  • Welshhomestead Smokery
  • Aur Y Ddraig

Said Lowri Davies, Cywain Team Leader (Support for Small and Micro Businesses) said:

“We’re delighted to have such a great range of producers on the stand over the two days. It is an exciting opportunity for them as the Festival will be the first time most will have showcased their products to such a wide – and large – audience.

“They have been working with Cywain in a number of ways, including test trading, which will hopefully stand them in good stead at events such as this Festival and give them the confidence and techniques needed when selling direct to the public.”
