t is, of course, a certifiably genius idea, and one that might just be the brightest way forward for our local farmers and producers.
Pull together all the best crafters, grafters, cooks, creators, farmers, bakers and shakers and put all their homemade goodies under one roof.
In this case, the Glenroe Farm roof over in sunny Kilcoole.
And then, with all these fine, homegrown vegetables, homemade jams, honey, crackers, berries, cider, chutney, beef and beyond uploaded to one big online menu, let people shop in the comfort of their own pyjamas, their chosen produce bagged up andready to collect every Thursday evening.
It’s a win, win, win situation. The producers win, the farm wins and, most importantly, the customer gets to walk away with a basketful of yum that’s all been created locally.
Here’s the official lowdown on this groovy hoedown…
